There are many factors that can lead to personal injury or wrongful death on a construction site. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Falls from heights or scaffolding
  • Slips and falls
  • Electrocution
  • Falling debris
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Getting caught in between objects
  • Machinery accidents
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Overexertion
  • Trench collapses
  • Exposure to harmful substances

While these accidents are not always preventable, often there were measures that could have been taken to avoid them. If you think negligence was a factor in your injury, our Lexington construction accident attorneys can help you determine fault and pursue damages.

Understanding OSHA and construction accidents

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), of the 4,251 worker fatalities in 2014, 874 or 20.5% of those occurred in construction. Statistics like this are why safety standards are so important. OSHA has a set of rules to which all construction sites are expected to adhere. The goal of OSHA standards is to reduce injuries, illnesses, and deaths on or near construction sites.

If you were injured as a construction worker, visitor, independent contractor, or passerby to a construction site and feel the site was in violation of OSHA, our Lexington construction site accident law firm can tell you how to proceed.
