Fatal Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction projects can involve many dangerous heavy equipment tools that increase the likelihood of an accident occurring. Construction sites should be following the guidelines put in place by OSHA to prevent injuries and accidents from occurring. However, every year many construction workers are severely injured while working because of the environmental hazards, heavy machinery, and electrical equipment that use to power many of the tools and operations.

The high risk of fatal injuries occurring make this job one of the deadliest jobs. In 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that 4,383 fatal work injuries were recorded. This figure reflected a slight decrease from the 4,693 fatal work injuries that were recorded in 2011. While many companies strive for an accident free work environment, these numbers show that we still have a long way to go. According to a report from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, there was a 5% increase in fatal work injuries in the private sector from 2011 to 2012. Construction workers in the private sector are working more hours than in any other year. Furthermore, fatal work injuries for individuals under 16 doubled. While it is impossible to prevent all work accidents from occurring, it is not unreasonable to expectation that employers provide a safe work environment and compliance with OSHA regulations.

Common Types of Fatal Construction Accidents

Construction companies need to better supervise their employees and only work the number of hours allowed under federal regulations. It is important for the construction site foremen to inform all of the construction workers of the risks that will be associated with the project before they start working.  Additionally, the company should point out what the OSHA regulations are for the project and the importance of adhering to the safety procedures. Some of the most common causes of fatal construction accidents in Texas include:

Causes of Texas Fatal Construction Accidents

Texas construction workers can be involved in a fatal accident and become injured in several different ways. It seems that each year there is more fatalities that occur on a construction site. Many of these construction companies would rather take short cuts on safety and risk their employees’ health and well-being to make a few extra dollars. Many companies may feel pressure to finish a project on time and may cut corners on safety. Many construction injuries can occur from the heavy equipment that they use on the work site.  After a fatal construction accident our lawyer knows how difficult this time may be for you and your family.
