What Are the Most Common Causes of Construction Accidents?
Falls are the single most common cause of construction accidents, followed by being struck by an object, electrocutions and becoming trapped between objects. Other factors that can play a role in causing construction accidents include (and are not restricted to):
- Heavy equipment malfunctions
- On-site motor vehicle accidents
- Scaffolding or ladder accidents
- Trench accidents
- Exposure to dangerous or toxic substances.
Who Is Liable for Construction Accidents?
The nature and cause of a construction accident will impact liability, as well as the recovery options:
- When construction workers are hurt in these accidents, they may be able to pursue workers’ compensation claims and, in some cases, a personal injury claim. Liability does not have to be proven for workers’ compensation claims; it does, however, for personal injury claims.
- When people other than construction workers are injured in these accidents, they may have a claim against various parties – like the construction company, a municipality, etc.
A lawyer at Greenberg, Walden & Grossman, LLC can determine all of the parties that are liable for your construction accident so you can hold them all accountable – and so that you can maximize your financial recovery.
What Type of Damages Are Available for Construction Accident Claims?
The nature of the damages for a construction accident claim will depend on the type of case(s) being pursued. Generally, compensation for victims can include some combination of:
- Workers’ compensation benefits
- Death benefits
- Personal injury compensation.
