¿Cuáles son los cuatro accidentes mortales de la construcción?

Out of 4,674 employee fatalities that happened nationwide in 2017, nearly 1,000 of them (or about 20%) happened in the construction industry. To put it another way, 1 in 5 occupational deaths annually occur on a construction site. These are frightening statistics and they point to a serious problem when it comes to construction accident injuries and death.

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

Estas causas comunes de los accidentes y lesiones en la construcción se conocen como las cuatro fatales. Estas causas son responsables de prácticamente el 60% de las muertes de trabajadores en la industria de la construcción.

Additionally, while not on the list of four, work zone highway accidents are also very common. There are several safety initiatives to address this ongoing issue. Along with criminal charges, when a driver hits a worker, there will generally be a civil claim too.

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

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

In other instances, a routine injury might be aggravated or worsen during the course of treatment. For instance, an infection developing during or after surgery, or a greater muscle tear occurring during rehabilitation. Injured workers 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 secure your rights and enable you to recoup your damages.

Dicho esto, los accidentes de la construcción pueden causar lesiones graves o devastadoras, como:

Should You Request a Free Construction Accident Case Assessment?

En virtud de la legislación de California, un empleado lesionado tiene derecho a solicitar y recibir prestaciones de compensación laboral por lesiones sufridas en el trabajo.

In addition to workers' compensation benefits, an injured construction worker can also have a third-party negligence claim. The claim 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. Typically, these types of cases involve either general negligence in preserving safe working conditions, or products liability for negligently maintained or manufactured equipment or vehicles.
