Common Construction Accidents

Vehicle Accidents

Cranes, bulldozers and large trucks are some of the vehicles that are often found on a construction site. If these vehicles are not used properly, then they can seriously injure or kill someone.

Ruptured Eardrum

Being constantly exposed to loud noise can also be dangerous. It can cause the eardrum to rupture.

Slip and Fall Accident

Equipment, tools and debris should not be left around. If they are not picked up when they are not being used, then they can cause someone to fall and get injured. A fall can result in broken bones, bruises and bleeding. In some cases, it can also result in death.

Hazardous Materials Accident

Construction workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals and materials. These chemicals and materials are to be kept away from the public. It is easy for people to get exposed to hazardous smoke. This can result in respiratory problems.

Gravity-Related Accident

A person can be injured by objects or cranes. If a person gets hit in the head by an object, then a person can suffer a traumatic brain injury or die.
