Types of Accidents Common to Construction Sites

Nearly half of the Top 25 Most Dangerous Jobs in the United States are occupations in construction. In fact, the construction industry has a 29.2% higher rate of nonfatal injury compared to all other sectors.

  • Falls from scaffolding, rooftops, and ladders
  • Being struck by a negligent driver
  • Strokes from overexertion
  • Being struck by falling debris, tools, pieces of scaffolding, and other dangerous objects
  • Slips and falls from obstructing debris, equipment fluid leaks, or faulty stairs

  • Becoming trapped or pinned down by a fallen wall or heavy equipment

How Can A Construction Accident Lawyer Protect Your Rights?

Construction accident claims are often complex due to liability issues and workers’ compensation laws. For example, worker’s compensation is strictly limited to covering your medical expenses and lost income. However, if your injuries were the result of faulty equipment, you may be able to recover pain and suffering damages from the manufacturers by filing a third-party personal injury claim.

Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C. have handled numerous third-party construction accident injury claims. Our expertise in complex liability issues has successfully recovered pain and suffering damages, loss of enjoyment of life damages, permanent disability, and more. Each construction site accident is unique. Consult with one of our construction accident attorneys in Boston to determine if your accident qualifies for full compensation.

Common third-party construction accident injury claims:

A third party could be found negligent if;

  • A subcontractor supplied substandard materials for scaffolds and other structures
  • A motorist strikes a road worker
  • A company sells defective safety equipment
  • A manufacturer’s shut-off valve is poorly designed or faulty
  • An independently contracted electrician leaves wires exposed
  • They exposed workers to toxic fumes or asbestos
  • A property owner failed to inform construction workers of hazardous conditions, like missing stairs or ladders
