Construction Accident Causes
Any number of things can go wrong at a construction site. Common causes of job-site accidents include:
- Lack of or inadequate training for construction worker
- Inadequate number of workers on a work site
- Negligence and wrongdoing of a contractor, equipment supplier, product manufacturer, or another third party
- Substance abuse on the job
- Defective, damaged or worn-out materials, tools, equipment or machinery
In order to prevent construction accidents, a construction company is legally responsible for inspecting all worksites to ensure compliance with safety regulations and premises liability law. Additionally, manufacturers of construction tools and equipment are legally responsible for ensuring their products are not damaged or defective. If these regulations are neglected, construction accidents can occur and result in serious consequences for workers and/or unsuspecting passersby.
