Avoid the “Fatal Four” Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites can be dangerous; that’s why protective gear – especially hard hats and work boots – are critically important to all workers. However, those may not be helpful if you are victim to one the four most dangerous types of construction site accidents, the ones that cause the most deaths each year.

In 2011 (the most recent year for these types of stats), the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 17.5 percent of all deaths caused on private industry worksites were connected to the construction industry. Of the 4,114 total employee fatalities in private industry in 2011, 721 of them (17.5 percent) were in construction. The “Fatal Four” types of construction accidents, accounting for 57 percent of the construction-related deaths in 2011, were:

  • Fall
  • Electrocution
  • Getting struck by an object
  • Getting caught-in-between other objects

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics further revealed that, statistically, 410 lives could be saved annually, if efforts to increase safety features in these four areas were improved.

If you are a construction worker, make sure all safety equipment is in place – and in good working order – before beginning a job. If you believe something is missing, or you feel unsafe, question management. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

If you or someone you know has been injured on a construction site accident, talk to experienced Cherry Hill construction site lawyer Ron Graziano of Graziano & Flynn. He will investigate if you have a third party claim (meaning someone other than your employer was responsible for your accident) and get you compensated to the maximum extent allowed by law.

Client Reviews
Mr. Graziano had my best interests in mind when he represented me. He is clearly knowledgeable and handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I'd hire him if I ever found myself needing a divorce lawyer again. Nadia
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin

His staff is amazing as well!!
