Causes of Construction Accidents
Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has clear guidelines about safety protocols on construction sites, employers frequently ignore these or fall short in their obligations to workers. This can lead to significant accidents and injuries.
Some of the most common safety violations associated with construction accidents include:
- Inappropriate protection from hazards
- Lack of training
- Failing to maintain a safe job site
- Failing to warn about hazards
- Improper use of safety equipment
These forms of negligence often lead to some of the most common types of accidents, including:
- Defective equipment
- Forklift accidents
- Collapsed structures
- Crane accidents
- Falling objects
- Heavy machinery accidents
Unfortunately, many of the men and women who make their living in the construction industry in Palm Beach Gardens may be subject to significant or even fatal injuries as a result of a construction accident.

Types of Construction Accident Claims
The majority of construction site injuries are covered under the employer's workers' compensation insurance. However, this sometimes does not cover the full range of costs associated with an injury or death on the job.
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to pursue personal injury claims against a third party who could also be held liable for the injuries. Third parties include subcontractors, engineers, general contractors, site owners, manufacturers of faulty equipment or even architects.
There are numerous different variables involved in determining who should be held liable for your injury. Only the experienced construction accident lawyers at Gordon & Doner can help you determine any and all additional compensation you may be entitled.
