Construction Site Accidents
Although construction workers make up only about 4% of the workforce, they represent more than 7% of non-fatal workplace injuries, and 20% of fatal workplace injuries.*
Some of the causes of construction site injuries are:
- Being struck by an object
- Being caught in between objects
- Trench collapse
- Scaffold collapse
- Failure to supply proper protective equipment
- Repetitive motion injuries
Construction accidents can be very serious and may result in disability, lost income, and even death. In Wisconsin, an employer’s liability is governed by Worker’s Compensation law, but there may be additional avenues for recovery of damages. The injured worker may, in some instances, also have a claim against other responsible parties involved in the construction process such as architects, scaffolding companies, or subcontractors.
