Industrial Machine Accidents
Construction sites are hazardous places. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA), the construction industry is one of the top ten most dangerous industries in the United States. The United States Department of Labor reports that there were 991 fatal injuries in the construction industry in 2016 alone. There are numerous types of accidents that can take place while on the job. Construction workers can suffer serious bodily harm, long-term disability, and even death because of incidents that occur on their worksite.
 
Unfortunately, Texas has one of the highest incidences of construction site injuries in our nation. Regardless of how serious the injury, it is important for workers to conduct an investigation into the cause of their work-related accidents and who can be held liable. Employers, general contractors, subcontractors, and other management personnel are held responsible under the law to implement safety measures, to properly train workers on how to use equipment safely, and to warn those who are present of the various hazards on the construction site.

Construction sites are home to many different types of accidents. Some of the most common include:
 
Falls
Falling objects
Ladder and scaffolding accidents
Accidents involving heavy machinery
