According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, fatalities from construction injuries actually increased from 2003 to 2005 in the state of Texas and in the U.S. as a whole. About 1 in every 15 construction workers is injured each year. Not surprisingly, falls are the leading cause of injury and fatality in the construction industry. The extremities (legs, arms, hands and feet) and the back are the most common parts of the body injured in construction accidents. A quarter of these accidents each year are actually some sort of back injury. Construction site accidents also occur because of contact with an object(s), exposure to toxic or harmful substances, transportation related incidents, fire or explosions, and even violent acts. OSHA has set safety standards for construction sites and is able to impose fines when there are proven safety violations.

It is the employers’ responsibility to provide a safe work environment in one of the most dangerous occupations in the country. There should be sufficient training and supervision, adequate warning of hazards, provide well-maintained and safe equipment, offer compliance with safety guidelines, rules and laws, and be able to coordinate job safety with all workers at the site. If any of the above is not met and an accident occurs, then the company may be found liable for the accident if it is proven the accident was foreseeable and/or preventable. An experienced attorney can go over the details of the accident and help determine the liability of the injuries in the case.
