Common Construction Accidents

The most common types of accidents that occur on construction sites are considered the “Fatal Four” by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):

  • Falls
  • Struck by Object
  • Electrocutions
  • Caught-in/between (construction workers killed when wedged, crushed, or stuck between equipment, objects, and/or machinery)

These four leading causes accounted for nearly 60% of all construction worker deaths in 2018. According to OSHA, eliminating these deaths would save nearly 600 construction workers’ lives in America every year.

Common Injuries in Los Angles Construction Accidents

Due to the hazardous nature of construction sites, nearly every injury that results from a construction accident is serious. Common injuries from accidents include:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Respiratory damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries such as concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Other head and neck injuries
  • Loss of hearing, sight, or other senses

In certain instances, construction accidents can also result in psychological impacts as well. Many can suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a particularly severe construction accident. This can result in a significantly decreased quality of life and years of therapy and rehabilitation.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

When construction accidents occur, many injured employees are recommended to file a workers’ compensation claim to recoup any losses. However, it is important to note that there are often strict caps on workers’ compensation claims—and often, the compensation amount is far lower than what you may need to make a full recovery. Additionally, if negligence played a factor in your accident, you may have the potential to secure significantly more compensation for your needs.

An experienced construction accident lawyer can help navigate these options, providing you valuable counsel on what is the best option for your needs. At The Ryan Law Group, we take a comprehensive approach by utilizing industry experts and accident investigators. By conducting a comprehensive evaluation of your accident and its circumstances, we get a full picture of your case, which allows us to inform any legal decisions you may make.
