Excavation Accidents


Serving the Injured throughout Orange County Including Riverside, Santa Ana, and Anaheim

Construction jobs are one of the most dangerous professions in the United States and the use of heavy machinery to create trenches for foundations and tunnels poses a serious risk for construction workers statewide. When layers and walls of dirt collapse onto a worker serious injuries result including:

  • Broken bones,
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Death


OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) describes excavation and trenching as one of the most hazardous and dangerous construction operations. OSHA defines excavation as any man-made cut, cavity, trench or depression in the earth’s surface formed by earth’s removal. Cave ins pose the most danger to construction workers and result in the most deaths. Despite strict regulations and procedures, construction companies who fail to follow regulations create dangerous work environments for workers.
