Top "Fatal Four" Construction Accidents
Approximately 20% of all workplace-related accidents occur in the construction industry.
Following a fatal trench collapse that took place in Texas during 2015, David Michaels - the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) Assistant Secretary of Labor - revealed that there are more construction worker fatalities in the state of Texas compared to any other state in the U.S.
In fact, OSHA has identified four primary causes of construction accident fatalities:
- Being hit by an object
- Being caught between objects
Other common accidents can involve equipment malfunctions, scaffolding collapses and miscommunication between workers. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the employer to provide and enforce a safe working environment for all workers that are on a construction site that they are managing.
Am I Eligible For Compensation?
Following an accident, many victims are unable to return to work - and if they are, it's often at a greatly reduced capacity.
This can result in a loss or reduction of wages and increases in medical costs that are required to treat the injury.
If the employer did NOT subscribe to the Texas Workers' Compensation coverage, you may be eligible for compensation.
In the state of Texas, if the employer carries Texas Workers' Compensation coverage, there are strict rules in place that govern what medical bills and lost wages can be reimbursed.
While there are exceptions, it most instances an injured worker cannot hold a covered employer liable for the accident.
However, if the employer does NOT carry Texas Workers' Compensation coverage, you may be eligible for compensation.
