¿Cuáles son los cuatro accidentes mortales de la construcción?

Out of 4,674 employee deaths that occurred across the country in 2017, nearly 1,000 of them (or about 20%) happened in the construction industry. To put it another way, 1 in 5 job-related deaths annually take place on a construction site. These are scary statistics and they indicate a major problem when it involves construction accident injuries and fatality.

Las principales causas de mortalidad de los trabajadores en el sector de la construcción son:

  • resbalones y caídas
  • golpeado por un objeto
  • electrocución
  • atrapado en el medio

These common causes of construction accidents and injuries are referred to as the Fatal Four. These causes are accountable for nearly 60% of employee fatalities in the construction industry.

Further, while not on the list of four, work zone highway accidents are also quite common. There are several safety initiatives to address this recurring issue. In addition to criminal penalties, when a driver hits a worker, there will usually be a civil case too.

¿Los accidentes de la construcción causan a menudo lesiones graves?

In some circumstances, the true effects of an accident might take time to reveal themselves. Some injuries get considerably worse as days and even weeks pass. What may seem minor while at work might actually be a serious, potentially life-long injury. Sometimes adrenaline masks injuries or they simply take a while to develop.

In other cases, a routine injury might be aggravated or worsen during the course of treatment. For example, an infection developing during or after surgery, or a greater muscle tear occurring during rehabilitation. Injured employees are protected in these events by the laws of California but they are expected to actively seek relief from their injuries. Speaking with a personal injury attorney early can help protect your rights and enable you to recoup your damages.

That being said, construction accidents can result in serious or devastating injuries, such as:

  • Fracturas que requieren cirugía
  • Lesiones cerebrales traumáticas (TBI)
  • Lesiones de la columna vertebral que provocan que un trabajador quede parapléjico o tetrapléjico
  • Electrocución
  • Quemaduras
  • Lesiones oculares que provocan una discapacidad visual permanente o ceguera
  • Muerte

What Are the Top 10 Most Common Safety Violations at Construction Site?

The following is a list of the most frequent health and safety violations on construction sites. These violations can result in accidents and injuries that put employees' health and lives in danger. Commonly these violations are discovered after an evaluation of the worksite by OSHA.

The ten most common construction infractions are:

  • No utilizar el equipo de protección contra caídas
  • No comunicar la información sobre los materiales peligrosos

Según la legislación de California, un trabajador lesionado tiene derecho a presentar y recibir prestaciones de compensación laboral por lesiones en el trabajo.

Along with workers' compensation benefits, an injured construction worker may also have a third-party negligence claim. The case could be against a contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or other individual or business. There can be a third-party claim as long as the guilty party is not the employer or co-worker of the injured or deceased individual. Generally, these types of claims involve either general negligence in preserving safe working conditions, or products liability for negligently maintained or manufactured equipment or vehicles.

If you or a loved one has been hurt or killed as a result of a construction accident, an accident lawyer should be consulted as promptly as possible to assess your case and to protect your rights. Your Glendale construction accident lawyer will examine the cause of the accident, the extent of injuries and the accountable parties.

If the facts of your construction accident case do not call for a third-party negligence claim, you or your family still have a right to collect workers' compensation benefits.
