Unfortunately, construction accidents are not uncommon and frequently result in serious injury to workers as well as innocent bystanders.

Why Construction Accidents Happen

Construction accidents can happen for any number of reasons but usually because of:

  • Safety violations at the construction site
  • Improper or inadequate worker training, especially on machinery such as forklifts, cranes, and scaffolding
  • Defective or out-of-date machinery
  • Negligence or wrongdoing of a contractor, equipment supplier or manufacturer, or other third party
  • Alcohol or drug use on the job
  • Inattention/Distraction

When construction accidents happen, the consequences can alter your life in ways that you cannot begin to imagine. Medical expenses, loss of income or earning capacity, physical pain and mental anguish are just some of the many devastating effects of construction accidents. Fortunately, victims of construction accidents—workers and innocent bystanders alike—have certain legal rights and may be eligible to recover some, if not all, of their losses.
