Construction Accident Statistics: Texas & Nationwide

12,300 construction workers were injured in Texas in 2018, according to reports compiled by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS also reported that 107 workers lost their lives. That figure represents about 22% of all workplace fatalities in 2018. Safety standards are in place to protect construction workers, but these numbers show that accidents are still continuing to occur in this field more than any other.

More than half of construction worker fatalities across the U.S. can be traced to one of the four following causes, dubbed the “Fatal Four” by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration:

  • Falls, which accounted for 33.5% of fatalities in 2018
  • Struck by object accidents, which accounted for 11.1% of fatalities
  • Electrocutions, which accounted for 8.5% of fatalities
  • Caught-in/between accidents, which accounted for 5.5% of fatalities

These statistics reveal one thing: construction workers face significant dangers each day on the job. Whether you've been in a Dallas scaffolding accident or are suffering after being struck by a heavy object, help is available. Employers are responsible for taking care of their employees and, when they don't, they are liable for damages.

Dallas Construction Accident FAQ

What Causes Construction Worker Injuries & Fatalities?

Safety violations like a lack of standard fall protection, improperly constructed scaffolding, unsafe ladder use, inadequate respiratory protection, and machinery or tool malfunctions are several of the causes behind construction injuries and fatalities. By understanding what caused your accident, we can determine how to help you get the care and support you need. Our Dallas construction accident lawyers work with top experts in engineering, investigation, accident reconstruction, medicine, and other fields to build the strongest cases for our clients. And we’re standing by to see how we can help you.

We also help grieving families get answers after deadly construction accidents. While we can't change what happened, we can work to get solutions to issues such as medical bills, lost wages, funeral expenses, and any other suffering a loved one's construction accident has caused.

Who Is Liable for Dallas Construction Accidents?

Companies in charge of construction sites are responsible for making sure they're safe. Additionally, employers must make sure that their employees are trained, prepared, and have adequate equipment to do the job safely. Since construction accidents are almost always rooted in the operations, workers are rarely—if ever—responsible for causing them.

How Much Does Help from a Dallas Construction Accident Law Firm Cost?

Getting help from Arnold & Itkin LLP costs clients nothing upfront. Since we work on contingency fees, we cover all costs associated with a case and only collect a fee if we win results. This means that we handle court fees, investigative costs, and any other expense associated with your case. If we don't secure compensation for you, you don't pay us. It's that simple!
