“Fatal Four” Construction Accident Causes

The following is a list of Construction’s “Fatal Four” accident causes as provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Out of 4,114* worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2011, 721 or 17.5% were in construction. The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for nearly three out of five (57%) construction worker deaths in 2011*, BLS reports. Eliminating the Fatal Four would save 410 workers’ lives in America every year.

Because the Massachusetts Statute of Limitations applies to construction accident cases, victims have a limited time in which to file their case. If you feel you have a construction site accident case, it is critical that you act immediately to protect your rights.
