Building construction accidents
Construction workers wear hardhats and heavy boots, use special safety equipment and are trained to protect themselves from serious injuries while at the worksite. However, when pedestrians walk underneath, through or around the construction site, they are vulnerable to the construction company’s negligent actions that can result in:
➣Scaffolding collapsing onto the sidewalk
➣Tools and objects falling from overhead
➣Cranes crashing down onto the street below
➣Nails and other sharp debris scattered across the walkway
➣Hoses and electrical cords that pose the danger of a trip and fall
➣Spilled slippery substances that create a slip and fall hazard
➣Toxic chemicals released into the air
➣Explosions and fires
The property owners and the contractors responsible for the project are required to take important precautions that protect the public and the workers from injuries, such as building secure scaffolding, posting clear warning signs and lighting the area at night. You may have a valid premises liability claim against the owner of the property and a cause of action against the construction company for breach of such duties.
Accidents caused by roadway work
Construction is a common nuisance on Southern California’s roadways. When crews fail to take proper precautions, the situation can quickly grow dangerous. Negligence that puts your safety at risk includes:
➣Unsecure loads of construction material on the bed of a truck
➣Construction debris allowed to spill into the roadway
➣Flying debris that can penetrate a windshield
➣Oil and other substances that make the pavement slick
➣Lack of signs to warn drivers they are approaching a construction site
➣Insufficient barricades to block the construction area from the regular flow of traffic
➣Inadequate illumination of the worksite at night
➣A heavy vehicle — for example, a dump truck, wheel loader or excavator — backing into your car
➣Grooves, cracks and steep drop-offs in the pavement
➣Raised manhole covers
