When an employee reports to work on a construction site, they assume that all safety measures and precautions are being followed by their employer, their coworkers are properly trained, and the equipment that they will be using will be maintained and functioning properly. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Safety regulations are ignored, workers aren’t trained, and equipment is often dangerous.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), one in 10 construction workers is injured every year, with the leading cause of injuries and death being falls. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that there are over 150,000 construction site accidents every year, with the majority of the injuries occurring to workers’ backs, trunks, and spines. Because of these shocking statistics, construction work is one of the most dangerous industries in the U.S.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to negligence on the job site or a defective product, an experienced personal injury lawyer can review your claim and determine if there were unsafe working conditions, potential OSHA violations, and other hazards that may have existed at the time of your accident. They will also determine who may be liable for your injuries and damages and what compensation you may be entitled to.
