Construction Accidents: Common Causes
Despite the known risks of unsafe construction sites, many construction companies and contractors continue to put their workers in harm’s way. In fact, some accidents are so common that the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has dubbed them the “Fatal Four.” Falls, electrocutions, being struck by flying and falling objects, and being caught in or between moving objects account for the majority of construction site fatalities, and they are to blame for thousands of jobsite injuries every year. These accidents are often the result of:
- Inadequate fall protection
- Inadequate protection from falling tools and building materials
- Dangerous ladders
- Dangerous scaffolding
- Fault electrical system design
- Faulty wiring methods and electrical components
- Forklift operating errors
- Negligent operation of delivery trucks and heavy machinery
- Inadequate lockout/tagout procedures
Other common causes of construction site accidents in South Texas include:
- Inadequate respiratory protection
- Lack of training and hazard communication
- Missing or broken guards for power tools and machinery
Construction Accidents: Common Injuries
Construction accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, including external injuries and damage to internal organs. If you are experiencing pain or other symptoms following an accident on a construction site, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Seeking a prompt diagnosis could be critical to your recovery, and your medical records will serve as key evidence in your claim for compensation.
- Back injuries
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Eye and ear injuries
- Facial injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Neck injuries

- Soft tissue injuries
The consequences of a job-related injury can be far greater than many people realize.
