Victims can face massive medical bills and lost wages. Furthermore, the serious and permanent injuries may mean that the victim is unable to ever work again.

Most Common Types of Construction Accidents

Federal and state laws require that landowners and general contractors provide a reasonably safe work environment. Construction site injuries may be the result of negligence on the part of the general contractor, construction manager, parts supplier and/or manufacturer, or the architect.

Some common examples of construction accidents include:

  • Scaffolding failure
  • Ceiling collapse or wall collapse
  • Falls through unprotected floors or elevator shafts
  • Electrical accidents and/or explosions
  • Falling debris and/or materials
  • Forklift accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Burns
  • Material lift failure

Defective Construction Equipment

In addition, the failure of tools or heavy equipment to work properly may result in a product liability claim.

Defective equipment on the construction site that may result in a product liability claim include:

  • Welding equipment
  • Forklifts
  • Cranes
  • Ladders
  • Ropes and cables
  • Scaffolds
  • Construction materials or chemicals
  • Power tools
  • And other heavy equipment

If your construction site accident was not caused by the negligence of another person or product, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation.

Bystander Injuries

Workers aren't the only ones who can suffer injuries on construction sites. Particularly in crowded cities or construction areas where pedestrian traffic is common, bystanders can sometimes suffer injuries as a result of construction negligence. Some common bystander injuries in construction can include:

  • Being hit by falling debris
  • Tripping or falling over construction equipment
  • Getting caught in a building demolition explosion

These accidents can occur as a result of failure to set up proper protection at the site including pedestrian tunnels, warning signs, alternative pedestrian routes, etc.
