Construction work is physically demanding and construction sites are dangerous. Statistics indicate that tens of thousands of construction workers are injured on the job each year. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that over 1,000 construction workers will suffer a work related death this year. Many of these accidents could have been prevented if not for the negligence and carelessness of another. Common causes of construction accidents include safety regulations being ignored, employees not properly trained, dangerous equipment, falls, trench collapses and electrocution.
Statistics indicate that workers between the ages of 25 and 34 are the most likely to be injured in a construction site accident. Construction accidents often result in head injuries, neck injuries, fractures, injuries requiring surgery and death.
