Construction Worksite Accident Attorney Beaver County

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, out of 4,693 private industry worker fatalities in 2016, 21% (991) were related to construction accidents. As you probably know, construction is a dangerous business, not only for construction workers, but also for other people who happen to be at or near the worksite. Non-fatal construction accident injuries can be extremely serious and debilitating and accident victims should be sure to find a construction accident attorney to represent them in order to secure a recovery that fully compensates them for their injuries.

Common construction site accidents

A number of common construction site accident scenarios that we frequently see in our office are listed below:

  • Falls from scaffolding, ladders, buildings, or construction equipment
  • Slips, trips, and falls at the worksite
  • Electrocution
  • Falling debris from structures or equipment
  • Someone run over by construction equipment
  • Someone pinned between objects
  • Trench collapses
  • Fires and explosions
  • Machinery and equipment injuries

People injured at construction sites

Construction accident injuries are not limited to construction workers. Others that may be injured in construction accidents include people visiting the site such as architects and property owners. People who happen to be in the construction vicinity may also be injured as well such as people being run over by construction equipment or hit with falling debris dropped outside of the construction site from a building, scaffolding, or a crane.

Additionally, construction sites may be considered an attractive nuisance. This means that if it is reasonably foreseeable that a child might trespass onto the property, but the property owner and/or construction company does not secure the site and take reasonable safety precautions, they or possibly other parties could be liable for a child’s injuries at the construction site. These cases often occur when construction takes place in a residential area and a child neighbor enters the construction zone.
