Common Causes of Construction Injuries

Construction sites are fraught with hazards that can lead to a wide array of injuries, from minor to life-altering. Some prevalent causes of injuries include:

  • Ladder and Scaffolding Mishaps: Falls from ladders or scaffolding due to instability or misuse.
  • Equipment and Tool Defects: Malfunctions and failures leading to accidents.
  • Slips and Falls: Including falls from heights, contributing to severe injuries.
  • Heavy Equipment Accidents: Mishandling or malfunctioning of heavy machinery.
  • Falling Objects: Injuries caused by tools or materials falling from above.
  • Electrical and Fire Disasters: Leading to burns, electrocution, or explosions.
  • Hearing Loss: Due to prolonged exposure to high-decibel environments.

The Impact of Construction Injuries

An injury on a construction site can disrupt your life significantly, entailing not just physical pain but also financial burdens from medical bills, lost wages, and potential long-term disabilities. Navigating claims for construction injuries involves intricate legal considerations, including workers’ compensation, negligence, and product liability aspects.
