Causes of Injury
On the job injury rates are much higher on construction sites than on any other job. There is a higher risk of injury due to the nature of the work involved. The main causes of construction accidents include:
- Unsafe working conditions
- Unsafe equipment
- Poor safety precautions
- Insufficient training
In most injury cases involving construction site accidents, the injured person is only able to collect workers’ compensation benefits. However, some accidents may also involve the following factors that may support a personal injury claim:
- Defective products or equipment
- Negligence of a contractor or subcontractor
- Crane accidents
- Injuries from falling objects
- Falls from scaffolding or ladders
For these types of construction site accidents, you may need the experience of a qualified Orlando construction accident lawyer who will thoroughly investigate all of the facts relating to the incident.
