3 Common Causes of Construction Accidents

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on September 2, 2013

3 Common Causes of Construction AccidentsThe construction industry is booming in Texas, which is great for the economy, but a construction site is also one of the most dangerous workplaces in America. If you or a loved one work on a Texas construction site, here are the three common causes of construction accidents to watch out for:

  • Electrical construction accidents: It’s easy to forget how dangerous electricity can be if not handled properly. It’s vital to wear protection when dealing with electricity on a construction site. Electricity is a major cause of construction accidents due to contact with power lines, and equipment and extension cords not being used properly.
  • Fall-related construction accidents: The leading cause of fatal construction accidents is when a construction worker falls from a height. Most construction accident falls are related to inadequate scaffolding, no roof edge protection, unprotected openings in buildings, demolition work and inappropriate use of ladders and hoists.
  • Struck-by construction accidents: These types of construction accidents can occur because of a crane or large machinery hitting a construction worker. They also are caused by objects falling and hitting workers because of bad storage and no toe boards on scaffolding or tool belts for workers.

Even if you do your best to avoid construction accidents, not everyone is as careful. If you or a loved one were the victim of a Texas construction accident, you deserve justice and compensation for your emotional and physical trauma.
