Common Construction Site Accidents
According to OSHA, construction is the deadliest industry in America. In 2018 alone, over 1,000 workers died at construction sites nationwide. Construction site deaths accounted for over one-fifth of all worker fatalities in private industry. Many different hazards can cause construction site deaths and injuries, but four main risks caused more than half of all deaths in construction in 2018.
Caught-in/between objects or equipment
These are the top risks for construction site workers in New Jersey. As a pedestrian or bystander, common risks include motor vehicle accidents, structural collapses and unsafe construction sites. It is up to a construction site manager to ensure the reasonable safety of a site for workers and pedestrians. The neglect to do so could result in preventable injuries and deaths.

The defendant owed you a duty of care.
The defendant did something that went against his or her duty of care.
