Construction Site Liability

According to OSHA, construction site injuries are most frequently caused by what they call “the fatal four,” comprised of falls, a person being struck by an object, electrocutions, or a person being caught in or between equipment or a structure.

When injuries and deaths occur on construction sites, OSHA will often initiate an investigation to determine the cause of the accident and further determine if the employer(s) committed any OSHA safety violations. If safety violations are discovered, then the employer(s) working on the construction site are subject to penalties and fines.
