Unfortunately, construction fall accidents are common among construction sites and can cause death or serious permanent injury. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls. Two hundred and seventy-nine out of 806 deaths were due to falls, which equates to 34.6 percent of all construction fatalities. According to OSHA, construction falls cause far more work-related deaths than any other mechanism of injury. The next top three construction injuries include being struck by an object (9.8 percent), electrocutions (8.1 percent) and getting caught in between objects and machinery (1.6 percent). If you or a loved one gets into a construction fall accident and survives, it can take anywhere from weeks to years to fully recuperate. In fact, many falls cause devastating, permanent injuries, including traumatic brain injuries or severe spinal cord injuries that result in paraplegia or even quadriplegia. Construction falls can also cause severe and permanent injuries to a person’s extremities, such as arms or legs and can also cause major injury to a person’s hip or pelvis.
