Causes of Falls at Construction Sites

While a fall can be caused by a myriad of different factors, most construction site slip-and-falls occur as a direct result of another party’s negligence. From poorly constructed scaffolding to unmarked holes in a floor or roof, these accidents could often be prevented with proper adherence to safety procedures. Resulting injuries can include broken bones, spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, severe burns, lacerations, amputations, and in worst cases, death.

A construction site fall can be caused by any of the following:

  • Debris or clutter left in walkways
  • Lack of protective gear
  • Inadequate worker training
  • Faulty ladders or scaffolding
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Holes in the ground without safety cones

Construction workers that are injured under any of the above circumstances may have grounds to seek compensation through a workers’ compensation claim, a personal injury claim, or both. While a person generally waives their right to sue their employer in exchange for workers’ compensation coverage, they may file a concurrent claim against a third party in the event that their accident was caused by someone other than their employer. Successful claimants may be able to recover reimbursement for losses related to their medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning potential, and wrongful death benefits.
