Top 4 Causes Of Construction Safety Accidents

Accidents happen all the time, but most accidents are preventable. As a firm offering injury law services in Fort Lauderdale, the top causes of construction accidents we see are:

  • Contact with electrical power lines and misuse of equipment or extension cords are one of the major causes of construction accidents.

  • The leading cause of construction deaths in America is falls, so they need to be taken seriously. Improperly installed scaffolding and poorly assembled ladders cause many of these falls.

  • Being struck by a piece of heavy equipment also represents a main cause of construction accidents.

  • Toxic fumes and drowning in a trenching situation is another work site hazard.

If you’ve been the victim of a construction accident, contact us to see what your rights are. As a well-respected member of the community, David Benenfeld has been working for the injured for over a decade. While a slip or fall may seem like just an accident, property owners are responsible for maintaining a safe environment. If you feel like your injury was caused by someone’s negligence, call us today for a free consultation.
