Types of Construction Accidents

There are more than 150,000 construction accidents each year that lead to injuries. Many people working in a small area while using heavy machinery and rushing to make deadlines can lead to more injuries. These accidents do not just apply to contractors but also non-employees visiting the work site.

There are many different types of construction accidents. A majority happen without fault, however many could be due to negligence. These include:

  • Forklift accidents
  • Crane Accidents
  • Scaffold Injuries
  • Vehicle Accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Electrocution
  • Fires and explosions
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falling from a ladder or other high place
  • Wrongful Death

Many of the accidents happen from inadequate supervision or negligent actions of the employer or contractor. This also includes third parties like manufacturers of faulty equipment or those who did not inspect the equipment correctly. Some of the more common issues include:

  • Lack of proper safety equipment
  • Training and instruction negligence
  • Inadequate safeguards on machines
  • Exposed chemicals
  • Toxic materials
  • Machinery defects
  • OSHA violations
  • Negligent security
