What are the most common construction accident injuries?

It is no surprise the construction work is more dangerous than most other industries. According to data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), we know that nearly 21% of all work-related deaths in the US during the latest reporting year happened in the construction industry. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) says that there are approximately 150,000 reported incidents causing injuries at construction sites each year.

Some of the most common construction accident injuries that our the attorneys at Nichols Law Group help clans with include:

  • Burns
  • Electrocution
  • Broken bones
  • Knee and ankle injury
  • Neck, shoulder, or back injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Illnesses caused by chemical exposure
  • Head injury
  • Brain injury
  • Eye injury

Many construction injuries happen over longer periods of time. Repetitive stress injuries are common in the construction injury and happen when a worker performs the same movements over and over again for months or years. These injuries should also be covered by workers’ compensation insurance, but they are harder to pinpoint on a workplace cause.
