When Construction Work Sites Become Dangerous

A worksite that does not make sure the equipment is serviced regularly is one that is managed negligently. Faulty cranes can drop a heavy load unexpectedly, and they can land on anyone in the area. Hazardous areas are supposed to have clear markings that keep you from going into them. If you unknowingly enter a dangerous area that is left unmarked, you can fall, trip or walk into fans, belts, or saws.

Your construction worksite can easily turn into a dangerous place when proper precautions are not taken. Falls are especially harmful and often result in serious personal injuries. Regulations are supposed to make sure that railings protect you from going off an exposed edge. Falling from a height onto debris or sharp objects does not have to happen when the proper safety precautions are in place.

If scaffolding is not properly shored and supported, it can give way and anyone standing on it can easily fall. Making sure that a construction worksite is safe requires constant maintenance by the managers and owners who are responsible for it. As a worker just trying to do a good job, you expect management to provide precautions that protect you from injury. When management fails to keep a site safe and you get hurt, you need a personal injury lawyer in Houston.

Types of Accidents at Construction Sites

Approximately 40% of all construction site fatalities involve electrocution. Other accidents and injuries that can take place at a construction site include:

  • Falling at the Job Site
  • Mechanical Hazards
  • Crane Accidents
  • Oil Field Drilling Accidents
  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Compressed Gases Hazards
  • Dangerous/Defective Tools and Machines
  • Welding, Cutting and Brazing Accidents

Construction Industry Dangers

Working in the construction industry is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Workers all over the United States are injured or killed in construction accidents each year. Considering the growth of construction in Texas today, here are some key points you should know about construction injuries:

  • Construction companies are responsible for thoroughly inspecting each site with safety engineers and providing safety programs for Leg and yellow helmet of injured lying worker at work.employees. When these measures are not implemented or fail to protect construction workers, the owners, architects, insurance companies, and equipment manufacturers can be held legally responsible.
  • Third-party negligence means the manufacturers of the various equipment and products used on the site can be found liable. It is also possible that subcontractors and even the general contractor may be contractually responsible for damages.
  • Worker’s compensation provides those workers injured on the job or suffering from disease while in the course of employment, benefits that include payments based on the employee’s wages and total or partial disability. Unfortunately, this alone may not be enough compensation.

I hired the Dashner Law Firm to represent me in an auto accident that I was in that resulted in a lot of medical bills. The insured that hit me didn’t have the coverage to cover all of the bills. The Dashner Law Firm worked with the hospital, doctors and chiropractic firms to reduce the amount I owed and was able to settle with the insured’s insurance company to get them all paid. The process was easy and they were extremely professional. I would highly recommend the Dashner Law Firm.
