Construction’s “Fatal Four”: Leading Causes of Construction Worker Fatalities in the U.S.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately one-fifth of all worker fatalities in the U.S. occur in the construction industry. Excluding highway accidents, there are four leading causes of construction worker fatalities each year.

In 2017, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported the following “fatal four” causes of construction accidents, which caused nearly 60% of worker fatalities:

  • Falls
  • Struck by object
  • Electrocution
  • Caught in or between equipment, collapsing structures, or materials

These incidents may be caused by negligence, inexperience, faulty equipment, or failures to comply with safety standards. Drug or alcohol abuse can also cause construction site injuries. It will be important to determine the cause in order to pursue and recover fair compensation by way of a workers’ compensation claim or wrongful death action.

Compensation for Construction Injuries in Philadelphia

When scaffolding accidents, ladder falls, structure collapses, and other serious construction accidents are not fatal, they can cause catastrophic injuries that forever alter a worker’s life. Workers may suffer from spinal cord injuries, severe burns, brain injuries, paralysis, or amputation. The recovery of benefits or compensation will provide the only means for a worker and his or her family to cover medical bills and living expenses while the worker is injured and unable to work. They can even cover emotional trauma, such as pain and suffering.

Serving Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, we at The Villari Firm, PLLC are dedicated to helping victims of construction site accidents and their families recover the monetary damages they need and deserve. Whether your accident is covered by workers’ compensation or if third-party liability means you can pursue a personal injury or wrongful death action, we will take the appropriate course of action to help you face a brighter future.
