Why Construction Accidents Happen
Construction accidents can happen for any number of reasons but usually because of:
- Safety violations at the construction site.
- Improper or inadequate worker training. Especially on machinery such as forklifts, cranes and scaffolding.
- Defective or out-of-date machinery.
- Negligence or wrongdoing of a contractor, equipment supplier or manufacturer or other third party.
- Alcohol or drug use on the job.
When construction accidents happen, the consequences can be life altering. Medical expenses, loss of income or earning capacity, physical pain and mental anguish are just some of the many devastating effects of construction accidents. Fortunately, victims of construction accidents -workers and innocent bystanders alike- have certain legal rights and may be eligible to recover some, if not all, of their losses.
