Metairie Construction Accident Attorney
In Louisiana, construction on the roadways is often occurring, and it is not uncommon for accidents and injuries to occur on construction sites. In fact, workplace fatalities increased by 21% in Louisiana in 2019.
Over 13% of the fatal injuries were from falls and over 16% were due to exposure to harmful substances or environments. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has identified four primary causes of construction accidents: falls, falling objects, electrocutions, and getting caught in or between structures.
There are many regulations in place for the construction industry, but this doesn’t mean accidents don’t happen due to the dangerous situations construction workers can be put in while completing their jobs. Tragically, one in every five worker fatalities are construction workers. Construction sites can be even more dangerous due to the lack of space between the buildings and streets.
