Injuries From Construction Site Slip-, Trip-And-Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents, as well as trip-and-fall accidents, are not unique to construction sites, but when these accidents occur on a job site, it can be a dangerous situation leading to serious injuries.
Safety precautions must be taken by those securing and operating the job site to ensure the safety of workers. When walkways are obstructed or substances are spilled, workers can become permanently injured in a fall.

Whether it had rained on a job site or a substance was spilled, or if there is a failure to perform proper snow and ice removal, any walking surface on a construction site can become very slippery. If proper clean-up does not occur, proper safety precautions are not taken or workers are not properly notified of the unsafe area (through signage or verbal directions), it is a clear-cut case of negligence.
When objects are obstructing areas where construction workers need to move or pass through, workers may trip and fall, leaving them with broken bones, serious lacerations and abrasions and other severe injuries. Trip-and-falls can be just as devastating as slip-and-falls, often requiring workers to be out of work and seek extensive medical attention and treatment.
Falls From Heights
Unfortunately, many slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents on a construction site occur high off the ground or on stairways, resulting in a substantial fall. These types of accidents can cause even more devastating injuries such as spinal cord injuries and paralysis, traumatic brain injuries and concussions and penetrating injuries if the worker fell onto an object.
