Construction Sites Can Be Extremely Dangerous and Cause Serious Injuries or Death
Construction sites can present dangerous conditions to construction workers and to other individuals on or in the vicinity of a construction site. The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, according to the U.S. Department of Labor greater than one out of every five work-related deaths are in the construction industry. The leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry are falls, followed by struck by an object, electrocution, and caught-in/between. These “Fatal Four” types of accidents were responsible for more than half (58.6%) the construction worker deaths in 2018 according to Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. In addition, 1 in every 10 construction workers is injured on the job every year according to OSHA. Aside from fatal injuries, non-fatal injury rates are 71% higher than any other industry.
Construction Accidents in San Francisco and The Bay Area
San Francisco and The Bay Area have experienced a boom in all types of construction. While city and state laws aim to keep construction sites safe, site owners, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, and architects may not follow the proper safety procedures and put workers and others at risk of serious injury or death. Additionally, construction sites have many pieces of heavy machinery and equipment. Workers can get hurt when those machines are used incorrectly, are not properly maintained, or are defective. If you are injured because of a defective or improperly maintained piece of equipment, you may be able to hold liable the company that manufactured, sold, rented, or operated it.
Obtaining Compensation for Construction Accident Victims
Property owners and general contractors are responsible by law for construction site safety and to take steps to protect workers, visitors, and persons on or in the vicinity of the construction site, and to ensure that construction sites are safe and free of hazardous conditions. If there are any potential dangers that could harm a worker or others, those conditions must be addressed immediately. Workers must have the necessary safety equipment to do their job. Construction site workers must also be properly trained to perform their job safely. The contractors and owner of a property under construction are required to make sure that the construction site operates in a safe manner. When they fail to do so they can be liable for injuries or death.
