We can fight for you while you make the best recovery possible from injury.

Common Causes of Demolition Accidents

Controlled demolition is the most effective way contractors clear lots for new construction projects since the property owner wants something else or the existing property has become dangerous or dilapidated. Besides the inherent dangers in demolition sites, the conditions of old or abandoned buildings are also hazardous.

The following are the common risks of demolition sites:

  • Improper use of explosives – When handling explosives involve negligence, it could be every person on the demolition site at risk of a catastrophic or fatal injury. Improper use of explosives includes premature detonation, failing to make sure the area is clear prior to setting off the explosives, or poor placement of explosives.
  • Falling debris – Whether it was caused by the explosion or because of the condition of the building, these can cause objects within these structures to fall. Unfortunately, falling objects is one of the most common causes of catastrophic and fatal head injuries in the construction industry.
  • Falls from ladders and scaffolding – Workers must often use ladders and scaffolding for construction and demolition projects. Falls from elevated heights can result in severe fractures and life-threatening internal injuries.
  • Toxic chemical exposure – Demolitions often involve many types of chemicals, which makes it possible for workers to inhale toxic fumes which can cause respiratory and internal damage or cause cancer.
  • Negligent use of equipment or equipment malfunction – Construction machinery and equipment must be safely handled to avoid injury or worse. Injuries often occur due to irresponsible use and machinal failure.

Even if you were partially or solely at fault for the accident which led to your injuries, you are still entitled to obtain benefits according to Florida law. If a third party is to blame for the accident and your injuries, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against that party—on top of receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
