Safety Hazards on Construction Sites

Though there are various OSHA regulations and on-site rules in place to help reduce the risk of serious accidents occurring, accidents can, and often do, occur on construction sites anyway. Just some of the most common safety hazards and incidents that can lead to very serious injuries are as follows:

  • Negligent supervisors
  • Dangerous property conditions
  • Unsafe scaffolds
  • Explosions, electrocutions, or burns
  • Cave-ins and structural collapses
  • Defective power tools
  • Defective ladders
  • Being struck by fallen objects
  • Demolition accidents
  • Slip and falls

Recovering Compensation After a Construction Site Accident

Often, when someone is hurt on the job, they will file a workers’ compensation claim. Many (but far from all) employers in the state of Texas carry workers’ compensation insurance, a form of no-fault insurance. This will compensate an injured worker for his or her medical bills and a portion of their lost wages, regardless of how the accident happened or who caused it. If, however, your accident was caused by a third party who is not your employer, you can file a third-party claim and sue the liable party for financial compensation in a personal injury claim. There is no cap on the amount of damages a person may recover in third-party claims, which isn’t true for workers’ compensation claims.
