What Are The Fatal 4 Construction Site Injuries?


If you work in one of the more dangerous professions like construction, agriculture, or law enforcement, you are at high risk of suffering physical bodily harm or death while doing your job. For construction workers, the number of injury accidents that can transpire is several. There is a lot going on an active construction site, and even tiny mistakes can lead to severe or fatal injuries. This is why it is imperative that everyone on a construction site is adequately trained and alert at all times to minimize the chances of a catastrophic injury event happening.

If you were injured on a construction site in New Jersey, you might be owed compensation for your damages. For more information about what your rights are and your ability to recover maximum financial compensation, speaking with an attorney can be advantageous. The South Jersey construction accident injury attorney at Monaco Law PC knows how to help injured construction workers get the full amount of compensation they need to help them in the aftermath of a workplace accident.

Defining the Fatal 4 Construction Site Accidents

 Almost any accident that takes place on a construction site has the potential to inflict deadly harm. Though, four perils exist on many construction sites, which tend to be the most highly associated with fatal injuries. These are:

  1. Being hit by some type of object.
  2. Electrocution.
  3. Falls.
  4. Having one’s body or body part stuck in heavy machinery.

If you or someone you know was injured on a construction site, then there are several necessary actions to take to protect yourself and your interests.

First, when an injury accident occurs, it is important to determine where the harm is located. When the injury is located on one’s back or on the head, it is imperative to call for help quickly and to try and stay still until emergency medical responders arrive.

Second, if your injuries do not appear to be severe, you should still see a doctor and have them evaluated. In this scenario, you should not delay seeing a doctor, so if you can have a coworker drive you to the hospital or if you can have an ambulance transport you, that is best.

Third, if at all possible, take pictures of the location where your accident happened. Take pictures of your injuries. Also, be aware of who was around you at the time of your accident.

Fourth, inform your higher-up, whether that is a manager or another boss, that you were injured and that you are seeking medical attention. You do not have to go into great detail about what happened. Just let them know the basics.

Fifth, connect with an attorney for legal guidance and counsel.
