Construction Site Accidents
Safety is everyone’s job on the construction site, but ultimately, the safety of a construction worksite is the responsibility of the general contractor. This is especially true when a worker is performing work high off the ground, since serious injuries caused by falls off scaffolding are often preventable with the right safety measures.
Unsafe construction sites or falls from scaffolding can lead to wrongful deaths, as well as to catastrophic injuries. Serious injuries on a construction site can include, among others, head and back injuries caused by falls; electrocution injuries; crushing or asphyxiation caused by cave-ins; and/or injuries after being struck by a delivery vehicle or heavy equipment.
