South Carolina Construction Vehicle Accidents
Getting hurt in a motor vehicle accident at a worksite is among the dangers construction workers in South Carolina face every day. These include crashes involving dump trucks and other work vehicles such as bulldozers, graders, backhoes and forklifts. Other hazards on construction sites are being hit by vehicles or falling from vehicles. Workers and others are also harmed when heavy objects fall onto them from vehicles.
Accidents involving motor vehicles account for about 40 percent of fatal work injuries in the construction industry, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) says. Construction vehicle accidents can harm bystanders as well as workers.
