Common causes for work accidents in construction 

Falls in the workplace - work accidents in West Palm Beach, Florida

Construction work requires the duties to be performed in high places. If workers do not follow the necessary safety measures and protocols, the consequences can be severe and catastrophic to the workers' lives.  

 

As an employee at the construction site, you must be attentive and adhere to the safety regulations set forth. Owners and contractors must keep the construction site safe and clear from potential hazards. Guardrails or safety devices should be installed to reduce the risks of falling. However, often, these measures are not taken to save on the bottom line.  

 

If you suffer injuries from a fall at the workplace, we advise you to consult with a personal injury attorney specializing in workplace and construction accidents at Advocates USA. The person or entity that is responsible for the facility where the accident occurred can be held liable.

 

Blows by falling objects - Work accident in West Palm Beach, Florida

Construction workers who perform tasks on the ground often suffer injuries from falling objects from construction equipment, tools, materials, among other stuff.  These accidents usually occur while working below cranes or when work is conducted in high areas of construction.  Blows to your body by falling objects often cause head and eye injuries.

 

As , we often see these types of accidents. It is crucial, as construction workers, to always wear your safety gear and equipment. Having facial and eye protection can save your life.

 

If you suffer injuries from falling objects at a construction site accident, remember to consult with an experienced work accident and personal injury attorney. Our attorneys have the resources to be able to investigate the accident to prove liability effectively.

 

Speaking with safety industry experts to analyze the construction accident will allow us to verify that negligence contributed to the accident through damaged objects, lack of safety protocol, or faulty machinery.

 

Tools and work machinery with defects - Occupational accident in West Palm Beach, Florida

 

 

Construction work involves heavy machinery and power tools; if there is a defect in them, either because the machinery arrived faulty or because of wear and tear, the consequence can be detrimental.

It is crucial to have safety protection such as gloves, helmets, and lenses to ensure machinery's safe handling. Usually, these machines and tools must be verified and have safety marking to support their use. If you do not have it and suffered an accident, you can demand the necessary compensation for injuries.

 

 

Pollution by toxic substances - Work accident in West Palm Beach, Florida

 

The risks of being exposed to chemicals in construction areas can lead to health problems, including cancer, irritation, traumatic injuries, and more. Gases used in welding, for example, are dangerous to the body and highly flammable. Also, products such as paint, cement, among others, can cause problems for workers if they are damaged or are not handled correctly. It is essential not to use chemical products without knowing their characteristics and ensure the products are not expired or damaged.

 

Crushing - Work accident in West Palm Beach, Florida

 

Ditches or collapses from an excavation typically cause crushing accidents. These types of accidents can cause suffocation or oxygen depletion.

 

Experts should monitor construction work to verify the work performed to avoid hazards that cause injury or create a dangerous environment for employees.

 

If you have been involved in a construction site accident, it is crucial to contact a personal injury attorney specializing in workplace accidents in Florida.
