Cause of Injury
Accidents on construction sites may have a variety of causes. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) identifies the following as the top four causes of construction fatalities.
Falls: Workers often perform their tasks at great heights — 65 percent of the construction industry works on scaffolds — which puts them at great risk of injury.
Struck by Equipment: Large construction equipment, including cranes, trucks, and excavation vehicles, are typically present on a construction site. Workers may be struck by or pinned between these vehicles, causing serious injury or death.
Cave-ins: Workers can be seriously injured, or killed, when improperly secured trenches collapse or cave in, trapping them inside.
Electrical: Serious burns or even electrocution can result when working on electrical aspects of a construction job. Overhead power lines also pose a serious risk of electrical injury on construction sites.
Failure to Follow Safety Procedures
An accident may be the result of an employer’s failure to put in place safety rules or to follow the rules already in place. Failures may include inadequate training or warnings, improperly maintained equipment, or not implementing the requirements mandated by state and federal law.
In South Carolina, an employer’s failure to comply with federal or state workplace safety laws may constitute “negligence per se” when an employee is injured as a result. Contact a Hilton Head attorney to learn more.
Who Is at Fault?
While typically the general contractor is ultimately responsible for overall working conditions at a construction site, others may have played a role in the accident, including a sub-contractor, equipment supplier or manufacturer, or design engineers. Determining fault may require analyzing not only the facts of the case, but also relevant contracts and safety rules.
