Construction Accidents

Construction accidents and construction site negligence account for thousands of injuries each year in the United States and have contributed to over 5,500 deaths.

Government agencies have compiled the following statistics regarding workplace injury and death:

  1. From 1980 through 1995, approximately 93,338 workers in the U.S. died as a result of trauma suffered on the job.
  2. An average of 16 workers died each day in workplace related accidents.
  3. In 2000, the number of traumatic injuries suffered in the workplace contributed to approximately 5,600 workplace deaths.
  4. A total of 5.2 million injuries and illnesses were reported in private industry workplaces during 2001.

Workers who have been injured on the job generally must file a Workers Compensation claim in order to recover their damages, however, the Workers Compensation claim often fails to adequately compensate the worker for all of the losses, including pain and suffering, future lost wages, future advancement potential and future loss of enjoyment. If you have been injured on the job you may also be entitled to recover damages from a "third party" such as a negligent equipment manufacturer, negligent supplier or negligent property owner.
