Construction Accident Causes
As investigators into workers' compensation claims for construction accidents, we are familiar with all of the many different causes that may lead to an injury. By doing so, we are helping the overall cause to potentially win a case. Filling our staff with the proper knowledge.
When it comes down to it, these accidents typically happen due to a lack of proper care or attention by either the worker or the supervisor. However, there can be other issues leading to these circumstances. Here are some common causes for construction accidents and their subsequent workers' compensation claims.
Lack of Warning Signs
Construction sites require warning signs, which alert both the workers and any passers-by of the danger. So if there is no warning sign or a lack of them in a bigger area, then that is grounds for a winning investigation.
Falling tools and debris are a big reason for construction accidents. If any tools or equipment are not properly secured and fall from a high place, it will cause a significant injury if that piece of equipment or tool strikes someone. Not having this safety measure in place is grounds for a lawsuit.
All barricades around a construction site need to be in their proper location. Otherwise they may not do the job correctly. Without these proper barricades in place, people may be able to work onto a construction site without knowing it. Or, the barrier may not be far enough away from the site. Either way, if these barricades are deemed improper upon investigation, then that may lead to a winning workers' compensation claim for a construction accident.
Equipment Not Inspected
When construction equipment is not properly maintained or inspected, then it can malfunction and/or fail. Which may cause serious injury. When we investigate, we will look into the equipment if necessary.
