What Are Common Causes of Construction Accidents?

Construction accidents can occur for many reasons, including:

01

Falls

Falls from heights, such as ladders, scaffolding, roofs, or elevated work platforms, are a leading cause of construction accidents.

02

Struck-By Accidents

Workers can be struck by falling objects, equipment, or vehicles on construction sites.

03

Electrocution

Electrocution can occur when workers come into contact with live electrical wires, faulty equipment, or conductive materials.

04

Caught-in/Between Accidents

Workers can be caught in or between heavy machinery, equipment, or materials. This may happen during excavation, trenching, or when working with machinery that has moving parts.

05

Collapse of Structures

Structural failures, such as building or trench collapses, can result in serious injuries or fatalities. This can occur due to design flaws, inadequate support, or poor construction practices.

06

Defective Equipment

Malfunctioning or defective tools and equipment can pose a significant risk. This includes issues with power tools, machinery, and safety equipment that may lead to accidents.

07

Inadequate Training

Lack of proper training and awareness about safety procedures, equipment usage, and hazard recognition can contribute to accidents on construction sites.

08

Insufficient Personal Protective Equipment

Failure to use or provide appropriate personal protective equipment, such as hard hats, gloves, safety glasses, and hearing protection, can increase the risk of injuries.

09

Inadequate Safety Planning

Poorly developed safety plans and failure to conduct thorough risk assessments can result in unanticipated hazards and accidents.

10

Hazardous Materials Exposure

Construction projects involving hazardous materials, such as asbestos, lead, or chemicals, can pose risks if workers are not properly trained or if proper safety measures are not in place.

11

Overcrowded Work Areas

Overcrowded workspaces can lead to congestion and increase the risk of accidents, especially when multiple tasks are being performed simultaneously.

"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

What Are Common Construction Accident Injuries?

Common construction accident injuries include:

Struck-By Injuries

Workers can be struck by falling objects such as tools, equipment, or construction materials. These incidents can cause head injuries, fractures, and other traumatic injuries.

Electrocution

Construction sites often involve electrical work, and accidents can lead to electrocution. Electrical injuries can range from minor shocks to severe burns, cardiac arrest, and death.

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Overexertion, repetitive motions, and improper lifting techniques can result in musculoskeletal injuries such as strains, sprains, and soft tissue injuries.

Burn Injuries

Accidents involving fires, explosions, or exposure to hazardous materials can result in burn injuries ranging from minor to severe, requiring extensive medical treatment.

Respiratory Injuries

Exposure to dust, toxic fumes, or hazardous materials can lead to respiratory issues, including asthma, lung infections, or more severe conditions.

Eye Injuries

Workers may suffer eye injuries from flying debris, chemicals, or foreign objects. These injuries can range from minor irritations to serious trauma requiring medical attention.

Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Prolonged exposure to loud machinery and equipment without proper hearing protection can lead to permanent or temporary hearing loss.

Vibration-Related Injuries

Prolonged use of vibrating tools and machinery can cause hand-arm vibration syndrome, leading to numbness, tingling, and reduced dexterity.

Chemical Exposures

Exposure to hazardous chemicals and substances can result in chemical burns, respiratory issues, skin conditions, and other adverse health effects.

Heat-Related Illnesses

Working in hot environments without proper hydration and protective measures can lead to heat-related illnesses, including heat exhaustion and heatstroke.

What Compensation Am I Entitled to After a Construction Accident?

After a construction accident, you may be entitled to the following types of damages:

Construction injury lawyer

What is the Statute of Limitations in Texas?

You will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. If you fail to file a lawsuit within this deadline, your case may be dismissed from court. This means you will be unable to pursue compensation for your medical bills and other damages. When you hire a construction injury lawyer at the Ben Dominguez Law Firm, you can rest assured that all paperwork will be filed correctly and on time.

What Does "Standing to Sue” Mean

Standing to sue refers to an individual’s legal right to file a lawsuit. To have standing to sue, certain conditions must generally be met:

Injury or Harm

The individual filing a lawsuit must have suffered an injury or harm. This would involve physical injuries resulting from an accident on the construction site.

Causation

There must be a direct connection between the negligence of the party being sued and the injuries you suffered. You must show that the other party’s actions were a major factor in causing the harm.

Redressability

The court must provide a remedy for the injuries you suffered. This would involve awarding compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Proximate Cause

Proximate cause is considered to determine whether the other party’s actions were a foreseeable cause of your injuries. This could involve assessing whether the harm suffered was a direct and natural consequence of the other party’s actions.
