Common Causes of Construction Accidents
According to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), out of 4,175 worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2012, 806 or 19.3% were in construction. The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by being struck by objects, electrocutions/burns, and being caught in or between equipment. Known as the “Fatal Four,” these causes were responsible for more than half (54.2%) the construction worker deaths in 2012, according to reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). It is estimated that eliminating the Fatal Four would save the lives of 437 American workers each year.
The exact proportions of worker deaths in 2012 from Fatal Four causes were as follows:
- Falls – 279 out of 806 total deaths in construction in CY 2012 (34.6%)
- Struck by Object – 79 (9.8%)
- Electrocutions – 66 (8.1%)
- Caught-in/between – 13 (1.6%)
In addition to these major causes, construction injuries can also be caused by defective equipment, collapsing buildings, repetitive motion tasks, and more. Regardless of the cause of your injury, our San Diego based personal injury lawyers at Simpson Law Group can represent your interests and provide the powerful legal support you need to maximize your potential financial recovery.
