Common Injuries On Construction Sites
Construction site workers typically take precautions such as wearing hard hats and following safety protocols. However, when managers, owners, supervisors, and others in charge do not follow safety rules or use shoddy materials or unmaintained equipment, injury can happen. The most common injuries on a construction site are:
- Chemical and electrical burns
- Eye injuries, including vision impairment or blindness
- Joint dislocations, tendon tears, and broken bones
- Neck, shoulder, or back injuries/breaks
- Spinal cord injury, including paralysis
- Head injury, including concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Lung damage caused by toxic chemical exposure

The Five Most Common Causes Of Construction Accidents
Many injuries on construction sites are caused by either human error or equipment failure. When that human error is owners or supervisors disregarding safety protocols, there may be a case for negligence and liability. Equipment malfunctions or faulty manufacturing can also cause accidents. Here are the five most common causes of construction site accidents:
- A fall from a height due to holes in scaffolding or slippery surfaces
- Trench or scaffolding collapse
- Electric shock or electrocution from power tools or wiring
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Failure to adhere to safety protocols
Construction site workers are also injured while on the roadways and in traffic-related accidents. Attorney Cannarozzi offers a complimentary case assessment for construction workers who were hurt while on site.
