Road Construction Accidents
Chicago Workplace Injury Attorneys
The construction industry is incredibly dangerous, and there are numerous hazards that construction workers need to deal with while on the job. Each year, there are hundreds of thousands construction workers who file workers’ compensation claims. There are many types of injuries a construction worker can suffer, but certain injuries come up again and again.
The most common types of injuries include:
- Shoulder injures
- Knee injuries
- Fractures/Broken Bones
- Back injuries
OSHA has a report that outlines the top 4 most common fatalities in construction accidents, also known as the Fatal 4. The Fatal 4 include falling from a height, being struck by equipment, electrocution, and being caught between two objects. It is estimated that preventing the Fatal 4 would prevent up to 500 deaths a year. Distracted driving has also contributed to deaths on roadside construction sites, as drivers are less likely to see workers while using their smartphone.
