  • Falling Objects: Tools, materials, and debris can cause significant injuries when they fall from above.
  • Equipment Accidents: Heavy machinery can be dangerous if not properly maintained or operated.
  • Electrocutions: Contact with power lines and faulty wiring can lead to serious injuries or death.
  • Scaffolding Collapses: Improperly constructed or maintained scaffolding can result in catastrophic accidents.

The severity of injuries sustained in construction accidents can vary greatly, but they often include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): These can result from falls or being struck by objects.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Often leading to partial or complete paralysis.
  • Broken Bones: Fractures are common in falls and heavy equipment accidents.
  • Burns: Electrical accidents and fires can cause severe burns.
