+ Construction Site Accident Statistics and Common Causes

While the number of Phoenix construction site accidents that have occurred has gone down in recent years, there are still far too many deaths every year in the United States from construction accidents, and several hundred thousand people are injured at construction sites to the point that they miss some work that same year.

There are several leading causes of construction site accidents, and the most common cause by far is falling. A large portion of Phoenix, Arizona construction site falls that lead to injuries or fatalities occur from high places where the ground on which workers are standing is not stable, leading to obvious and troubling consequences. Below are other leading causes of construction site accidents:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Crane accidents
  • Hazardous waste spills
  • Welding rod accidents
  • Defective or malfunctioning equipment
  • Noise damage

While there are surely many more causes of construction site accidents in Phoenix, those mentioned above represent the most common types reported. The fact is that construction workers encounter a high level of risk every time they report for work.

+ Phoenix Construction Site Accident Lawsuits

When a Phoenix construction site accident occurs, there are two bodies of law that could be relevant to the situation. The first is the law of workers’ compensation, which in Arizona entitles someone who has been injured on the job to receive benefits that include funds paid out to the worker, medical care necessary to rehabilitate the worker, and perhaps vocational training and other, more long-term needs if the worker is injured badly enough that he or she will not be able to regain the construction work job.

In many situations, workers’ compensation law will govern these accidents, but even within this relatively clear-cut body of law challenges can arise. Claims can be denied, other issues such as allegations of preexisting conditions can arise, and the worker can be left to suffer with little or no help until the situation is resolved. It is in these situations where help from a Phoenix workers’ compensation lawyer can be essential in coming to a fair conclusion in regard to the claim at hand.

Despite the apparent jurisdiction of workers’ compensation law in Arizona, there are situations in which the laws of personal injury can and will be relevant to a legal claim that’s filed after the injuries have occurred. Below is a look at two examples of these types of situations and how our Phoenix personal Injury lawyers can help:

Third-Party Liability

Not all construction site accidents and injuries are caused by the worker’s employer or co-workers in the normal course of work. There are situations in which a third party could come onto the scene and cause an accident that leads to the potential for liability based on a claim for personal injury. An example of a third-party liability situation would be when a trucking company driver negligently dumps a load of supplies in a location that injures a construction worker.

Failure to Maintain a Safe Premises by the Employer

While workers’ compensation law tends to govern the law of injured workers, employers can still be sued for personal injury damages if the work site was kept in such a state that it was unreasonably dangerous. While most people understand that there are dangers involved with any Phoenix, Arizona construction site, negligence can still occur by way of lack of supervision, lack of providing safe equipment, and other situations in which the employer should have taken reasonable steps to protect the workers involved.
