Springfield Construction Accident Attorney
Construction Accident Claims in Missouri
Many people go to work every day, but few face as high of risk of danger in their daily jobs as construction workers. Data from the federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) shows that of the 3,929 workers killed on the job in 2013, approximately 796 were construction workers. This means that out of all industries in the United States, construction causes more than 20%, or one in five, of all worker deaths.
Leading Causes of Construction-Related Injuries
Over half of all construction worker deaths in 2013 were caused by four main danger areas — referred by to OSHA as the "Fatal Four."
These categories are as follows:
- Struck by object
- Caught in / between
Many of these accidents are caused by unsafe situations and violations of OSHA safety standards. When workers are subjected to conditions that are not up to code, their bosses, supervisors, and managers put them at risk.
