One in five fatal workplace accidents in the United States happens on a construction site, according to data from OSHA. Construction is an inherently dangerous job. However, it can become more dangerous when employers fail to observe the safety requirements set in place to protect workers. Common causes of fatalities within construction sites include falls, electrocutions, and people being struck by falling items and debris.
In some circumstances, injured workers may be limited to workers’ compensation benefits from their employer. However, if the accident was caused, even partially, by the fault of another entity or the injured person is not an employee, recovery may be available from other parties.
