Shreveport Construction Accident Lawyers

Construction Injury Attorneys in North LA

Over 21% of fatal workplace injuries take place in construction sites, according to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). Construction work is one of the most dangerous jobs in the nation because people work at great heights, handle heavy equipment, and are exposed to hazardous chemicals. The risks of construction work often expose workers to accidents that result in serious injuries.

Construction workers go to work trusting that they will be given the proper safety training and equipment to avoid getting injured. Unfortunately, employers often fail to provide workers with safe, injury-free workplaces. If you’re a construction worker and you were injured on the job because of another person’s negligence, you need an experienced attorney who will protect your rights. The Shreveport construction accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin LLP have recovered billions of dollars on behalf of our clients. We are dedicated to helping those injured on the job recover the compensation they need to move forward.

Construction Accident FAQs

What Are the “Fatal Four” Construction Accidents?

OSHA compiles data every year to determine what industries have the most injuries and what type of accidents are causing these injuries. OSHA not only discovered that most workplace deaths occur in the construction industry, but the research revealed that four types of accidents were responsible for the majority of those deaths—these are known as the “Fatal Four.”

The “Fatal Four” includes the following workplace accidents:

  • Falls: 38.7% of total construction fatalities
  • Struck by Object: 9.4% of total construction fatalities
  • Electrocutions: 8.3% of total construction fatalities
  • Caught-in/caught-between: 7.3% of total construction fatalities

OSHA’s research also discovered that construction accident fatalities could be prevented if companies implemented safety guidelines as required by law. OSHA estimates that more 500 lives could be saved every year if companies focused exclusively on the Fatal Four accidents. These shocking statistics demonstrate the importance of following safety protocols.

What Are Common Hazards Faced at Construction Sites?

Human error can result in major accidents—regardless of the cause. It is the supervisors’ responsibility to train employees on how to perform their work as safely as possible to prevent putting them in danger.

Examples of hazards that can cause accidents in construction sites:

  • Improper site design or inspection
  • Unmarked hazards (ex: unprotected holes or roofing)
  • Safety code violations
  • Improperly stored materials
  • Using old or defective working materials

If you lost a loved one in a construction accident, you might be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. Contact our Shreveport wrongful death attorneys for a free case review: (888) 493-1629.
