Construction Incidents

Victim of a Construction Accident?

Construction sites are among the most dangerous work environments there is. Construction workers face life-threatening conditions with the constant dangers of heavy machinery operation, unstable scaffolding, hazardous materials, etc. Because of the unique hazards posed by this line of work, both federal and state governments have mandated tight safety regulations. While you cannot sue your employer in most situations, if there is workers compensation, there may be a claim against someone other than the employer.

Unfortunately, many general contractors fail to meet the safety standards, effectively exposing their workers and contractors to deadly injuries. Whether the failures are intentional or the result of negligence, it does not matter as far as the victims are concerned.
