Construction Accidents: The Risks, the Facts and the Repercussions [Infographic]

Dec. 3, 2014
Accidents happen. On construction sites, accidents can happen frequently.

Each day, on average, two construction workers die of work-related injuries in the United States. In fact, one in five workplace fatalities are construction-related.

The top causes of construction-related fatalities are falls, struck-by an object, electrocution and caught between objects.

Generally, an employee cannot sue his or her employer for on-the-job injuries other than using the workers’ compensation system. However, at times the owner of the premises, the general contractor or other contractors could be liable in cases where employees have been injured.
