Construction Accident Dangers

Construction sites are full of potential dangers that could hurt workers and passersby if proper safety precautions are not taken. In many cases, accidents occur because of the negligence of property owners, defective machinery, a negligent construction company, or a worker on the site. If you or someone you know has been injured on or near a construction site and you believe someone else may be liable, our Louisville personal injury lawyers are here to help. Contact the law office of Sampson Law Firm, by calling 502-584-5050.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

A construction accident may occur suddenly and unexpectedly, hurting or killing one or many workers. Those who work near a construction site or are simply passing by may also be at risk. Some common causes of accidents on or around construction sites include:

  • Heavy equipment malfunction
  • Crane collapse
  • Scaffolding collapse
  • Falling objects, resulting in traumatic brain injury
  • Lack of training
  • Lack of proper safety gear
  • Failing to follow safety protocols

Any of these hazards could cause workers or bystanders to be severely injured. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a construction accident, it is important to know that you have the right to hold the liable company or other party accountable. The attorneys at the Sampson Law Firm may be able to help you recover compensation for any expenses incurred because of your accident, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This will depend upon the nature of the accident and your affiliation or lack thereof with the company.
