Common Causes of Construction Injuries

Construction sites are commonplace for injuries, which is why many people may require a lawyer at one time or another. There are a few common causes that lead to these types of work injuries. And it is always important to document your injuries. This way you are prepared As a workers compensation law firm on Long Island, we deal with many construction accidents. So we are well acquainted with how to handle them. Here are four of the more common causes for injuries on a construction site:

Poorly-Inspected Equipment

When construction equipment is not inspected or properly maintained, then it is more likely to malfunction and fail. When this happens, serious injuries may occur. Injuries workers can easily avoid. So when this happens, there is a solid case for workers compensation.

Improper Barricades

Construction sites need working barricades. These barricades keep pedestrians out of the work site. Without these barriers in the right spot, people may accidentally walk onto a construction site and get hurt. And this intrusion not only may harm pedestrians, but their presence may also put the workers in danger, too. Also, if the barriers are not be far enough away from the work dangers, accidents may happen.

Lack of Proper Warning Signs

When workers are at a construction site, they require warning signs alerting passers-by of the potential dangers. If there are no such signs, then accidents are more likely to occur. And of course, this lack of signage also effects construction workers.

Unsecured Tools

Construction sites are prone to falling debris and tools. These accidents happen when these items are loose. Properly securing them ensures a safer work environment. Because otherwise construction sites run a higher risk of serious injuries or even death!
