Construction Workers' Accidents Archives

Construction accidents can leave families struggling

In less than a blink of an eye, a life can be irrevocably changed or even lost entirely. Unfortunately, construction sites are no stranger to fatal injuries, and many workers lose their lives every year due to construction accidents. Not only do these events leave California families grieving, but they also often leave families struggling financially.

Too many fatal falls result from construction accidents

Falls are a part of life. From a young age, people fall while learning to walk or while playing outside. Of course, the injuries that result from those instances are often relatively minor. As California residents get older, they face greater dangers and may have jobs that result in them working at considerable heights. If so, falls could lead to fatal construction accidents.

Construction accidents often have devastating outcomes

Many people in Los Angeles work in the construction industry. As a result, those same people are at risk of suffering serious injuries as a result of construction accidents. Even when workers do their best to remain safe on work sites, sudden events can take place that leave them needing assistance in more ways than one.

Construction accidents involving scaffolding not uncommon

Scaffolding is a common piece of equipment used in construction projects. It allows individuals to work at heights without ladders and to have more room to maneuver while carrying out their duties. However, scaffolding is also commonly involved in construction accidents either due to workers falling from them, the structures collapsing or other issues.

Materials can cause injuries in construction accidents

California construction areas are often busy places. Several workers are usually milling around carrying out work-related duties that involve machinery, equipment and heavy materials. While these aspects are typically needed in order to complete projects, they can also play roles in serious construction accidents that lead to workers suffering injuries.

When equipment fails, construction accidents can take place

Anyone's life could be changed in an instant, and this is especially true when individuals are involved in sudden accidents. These incidents can happen under any number of circumstances, but for those who work in certain industries, the likelihood of serious events may be more prevalent. For instance, construction accidents can easily happen without a moment's notice.

Worker in critical condition after construction injury

Most California employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance in case a worker or multiple workers are injured on the job. This insurance can often help injured parties obtain financial assistance with medical bills and other monetary struggles that result from an on-the-job accident. Often, a construction injury can lead to needing this type of benefit.

Construction accidents involving falls can prove fatal

Falls are among the most common and most dangerous hazards on work sites. Construction accidents in particular often involve serious falls as California workers are commonly carrying out duties at significant heights. Any simple misstep or lapse in safety measures could lead to construction accidents that have serious or even deadly outcomes.

Equipment is often involved in construction accidents

Most California workers expect to go to work and have a normal day. Though this type of scenario may play out most days, it is possible that workers could have immensely bad days if construction accidents take place. Even when safety measures are in place, injuries could still result.

Road construction accidents often involve moving vehicles

Road construction is a common occurrence. Most California residents see some type of construction on their daily commutes. While these zones are often marked with bright orange cones, barrels and signs, many drivers do not take the time to slow down and act cautiously for the safety of the workers in the area. As a result, road construction accidents are not uncommon.
