Marietta Construction Accident Attorney

Information on Construction Accidents

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in 2011, over 4,600 people were killed at work. Of these workers, 17% were killed while on a construction site. When the causes of death were examined in construction fatalities specifically, it was determined that the most common causes of death were falls, electrocution, struck by an object, or being caught in between two objects. In fact, these causes of death are so common that if they were eliminated, 57% of construction site fatalities would not occur. Seek help from the best personal injury attorney in Marietta if you have suffered from a construction accident.

Out of all the different workplaces, the construction industry is the most dangerous. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration has strict guidelines in place to try to protect workers. If you were injured while on a construction site and you believe that it could have been prevented if your employer was upholding safety standards, you could be entitled to compensations. The most common types of safety violations which are found on construction sites are problems with scaffolding, lack of fall protection, not communicating regarding hazards, and unsafe use of ladders.
