Types of construction accidents

OSHA provides extensive safety regulations — including requiring workers to use protective equipment and follow strict guidelines while on the job — for construction employers and workers to help minimize fatalities and injuries. However, these precautions are sometimes disregarded when construction budgets and deadlines are tight or training is lacking.

When OSHA regulations are ignored or other negligence causes injuries, we help construction site employees, contractors and subcontractors, passersby, and others who are injured. We are knowledgeable about a wide range of construction accidents, including:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Crane collapses and accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Structural failure or collapse
  • Heavy construction equipment accidents
  • Crush accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Falls from high places or into elevator shafts

Recovering compensation for construction injuries

Negligence by employers, equipment manufacturers, landowners, architects, scaffolding companies, contractors, subcontractors, construction site workers or others can result in construction injury accidents. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and its cause, you may be entitled to receive workers compensation benefits or to recover compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Our San Francisco construction accident lawyers can analyze your case and help you determine who is responsible for your injuries and the best avenue of recovery for your harm.
