Working in the construction industry is one of the most dangerous occupations in the world. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 20% of worker fatalities are in the construction industry, accounting for one in five worker deaths every year. And thousands of other construction workers will suffer substantial debilitating physical injuries that could have been prevented. Even though workers in the construction industry are highly trained where safety is concerned, accidents are still prevalent on job sites across the nation.
We Provide Legal Advice For Workers Injured In Construction Accidents
When injuries occur due to construction accidents, many of the hard-working laborers can feel frustrated, betrayed, and they will often feel overwhelmed by the lack of legal options they are presented with. These workers are often severely injured and unable to work. With the loss of income, many of them can face great financial hardships. This motivates them to return to work sooner than they should even before they are properly healed. This can exacerbate their problem to where they could further endanger their safety and health.
Construction site accidents can result in debilitating injuries, brain injuries and wrongful death.
General contractors and project owners are required by law to keep construction sites safe. Accidents can be caused by many different things, including poor safety inspections, poorly maintained equipment, OSHA violations, and even someone else’s recklessness.
