While not always publicized, construction site accidents are quite common. From one side of the US to the next, construction projects of all sizes are taking place on a daily basis.
Despite the fact that safety standards and regulations are stricter than ever before, construction site accidents are a regular occurrence.
Generally speaking, there are six common types of accidents:
- Construction site falls
- Scaffold falls
- Electrical accidents
- Welding accidents
- Trench collapses
- Falling objects

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, it is essential to receive immediate medical attention. There is nothing more important than your overall health and well being.
Once stabilized and able to do so, you should reach out to an experienced construction site accident attorney to discuss your situation and learn more about your rights.
It is easy to believe that worker’s compensation will cover all injuries, but this is not always the case – especially if the injured is facing permanent losses and/or disability.
