Dangers Involved in Demolition

With many construction projects, construction crews must first demolish older structures before they can begin working on new buildings. Unsurprisingly, there are a number of hazards associated with demolition, and unprotected workers can suffer injuries such as broken bones from falling debris or lung disorders due to inhaling toxic dust and other particles during the collapse. In these situations, workers may need workers’ compensation benefits or Social Security disability benefits to help cover medical bills and lost wages during recovery.

At Stepleton Dugan, LLC, our lawyers understand the many dangers Cincinnati construction crews face on a daily basis, and we can help those who suffer workplace injuries due to employer negligence and other types of irresponsible behavior. We can help you understand your legal rights and options and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Hazards Associated With Demolition Projects

Whether breaking apart old pavement or completely tearing down an unusable building, demolition teams face a number of potential dangers, including:

  • Falling objects
  • Smoke / dust inhalation
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Equipment failures such as sledgehammer accidents
  • Crane collapse

Construction companies should do everything they reasonably can to protect workers from these hazards, such as properly clearing the area before demolition and providing workers with adequate safety gear.
