What are the Fatal Four of Construction Accidents?

Out of 4,674 employee deaths that took place nationwide in 2017, nearly 1,000 of them (or roughly 20%) occurred in the construction industry. To put it another way, 1 in 5 occupational deaths annually happen on a construction site. These are frightening statistics and they indicate a significant problem when it concerns construction accident injuries and fatality.

The leading causes of employee fatalities in the construction industry are:

These common causes of construction accidents and injuries are referred to as the Fatal Four. These causes are accountable for virtually 60% of worker deaths in the construction industry.

Further, while not on the list of four, work zone highway accidents are also very common. There are many safety campaigns to address this recurring issue. Along with criminal penalties, when a driver strikes a worker, there will usually be a civil case too.

Do Construction Accidents Cause Serious Injuries Often?

In some instances, the true effects of an accident may take some time to reveal themselves. Some injuries get considerably worse as days and even weeks pass. What may appear minor while at work might in fact be a severe, possibly life-long injury. Sometimes adrenaline masks injuries or they simply take time to develop.

In other cases, a routine injury might be exacerbated or worsened throughout the course of treatment. For example, an infection developing during or after surgery, or a greater muscle tear occurring during rehabilitation. Injured employees are protected in these events by the laws of California but they are expected to actively seek relief from their injuries. Speaking with a personal injury lawyer early can help protect your legal rights and enable you to recover your damages.

That being said, construction accidents can result in severe or catastrophic injuries, such as:

What are the Top 10 Most Frequent Safety Infractions at a Construction Site?

OSHA publishes this type of information to help avoid injuries, illnesses, and deaths on work sites. These accidents are easy to avoid when you adhere to safety guidelines.

Should You Ask for a Complimentary Construction Accident Case Assessment?

Under California law, an injured worker has the right to file and collect workers compensation benefits for injuries at work.

Along with workers' compensation benefits, an injured construction worker can also have a third-party negligence claim. The case could be against a contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or other person or business. There can be a third-party claim as long as the at fault party is not the employer or colleague of the injured or deceased person. Generally, these types of cases involve either general negligence in maintaining safe working conditions, or products liability for negligently maintained or designed equipment or vehicles.

If you or a loved one has been hurt or killed as a result of a construction accident, an accident attorney should be consulted as promptly as possible to review your case and to protect your rights. Your Monterey Park construction accident attorney will investigate the cause of the accident, the extent of injuries and the responsible parties.

If the facts of your construction accident case do not call for a third-party negligence claim, you or your family still have a right to collect workers' compensation benefits.
