Construction Accidents Elevate Your Expectations. Results Matter.

Construction Accident Attorney in Charleston

Construction is a fundamental sector that reflects the growth and development of any area, Charleston being no exception. New buildings, roads, and infrastructure signal progress, offering a visual testament to the economic vitality of our community. However, the substantial risks associated with construction work are often overlooked. This profession is fraught with hazards, from the heavy machinery utilized to the considerable heights at which work is performed.

Employers and contractors bear a profound responsibility to ensure the safety of their employees and others. At times, construction accidents are exclusively covered under South Carolina’s workers’ compensation laws, other times not. Regardless, adherence to state and federal safety guidelines is not simply about compliance but protecting lives. Despite these safeguards, accidents can and do happen. If you've been injured on a construction site, having a knowledgeable and aggressive legal advocate is crucial.

Construction Accidents in South Carolina

South Carolina law holds that companies and workers must comply with specific safety regulations. Despite this, construction still ranks among the most dangerous professions. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in five worker deaths nationwide in 2021 were in construction. That's a staggering statistic that underscores the serious risks construction workers face in South Carolina every day.

Why are construction accidents so common? Here are some reasons:

  • Lack of safety training: Not all employers provide sufficient safety training to their workers, which can lead to accidents.
  • Use of heavy machinery: The use of heavy machinery can be dangerous, especially if the user is not adequately trained.
  • Working at heights: Works performed at considerable heights, like roofing or scaffold work, inherently carry a high risk of falls and injuries.
  • Electrical hazards: Construction sites often involve electrical work, which, if not managed correctly, can cause serious accidents.
