What Are the Fatal Four of Construction Accidents?

These common causes of construction accidents and injuries are known as the Fatal Four. These causes are responsible for nearly 60% of worker fatalities in the construction industry.

Further, while not on the list of four, work zone highway accidents are also quite common. There are numerous safety initiatives to address this recurring issue. In addition to criminal charges, when a driver hits a worker, there will typically be a civil case too.

Do Construction Accidents Cause Serious Injuries Often?

In some circumstances, the true effects of an accident might take some time to reveal themselves. Some injuries become progressively worse as days and even weeks pass. What might seem minor while on the job might actually be a major, potentially life-long injury. Sometimes adrenaline masks injuries or they simply take a while to develop.

In other situations, a routine injury might be exacerbated or worsened during 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 required to actively seek relief from their injuries. Speaking with a personal injury attorney early can help secure your legal rights and allow you to recoup your damages.

Should You Request a Free Construction Accident Case Assessment?

Under California law, an injured employee has the right to file and receive workers compensation benefits for injuries on the job.

In addition to workers' compensation benefits, an injured construction worker may also have a third-party negligence case. The case could be against a contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or other individual or business. There can be a third-party claim as long as the guilty party is not the employer or colleague of the injured or deceased person. Typically, these kinds of claims include either general negligence in maintaining safe working conditions, or products liability for negligently managed 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 needs to be consulted as quickly as possible to evaluate your case and to protect your rights. Your Pasadena construction accident lawyer will investigate the cause of the accident, the extent of injuries and the accountable parties.

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