How am I Protected Against Construction Accidents?
Every year, there are thousands of construction workers injured or killed at construction sites. Although construction companies are required under labor laws to inspect each site with safety engineers and implement a wide variety of safety measures, construction workers still face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry. Labor laws were enacted to protect construction workers from work site-related accidents. It’s for this reason that our O’Connor, Parsons, Lane & Noble believes that most work site accidents are avoidable and that those not following laws to protect workers should be held accountable.
Some of the types of construction accidents we handle for our clients involve:
- Scaffolding Accidents
- Construction Site Falls
- Electrical Accidents
- Fires and Explosions
- Dangerous Equipment Accidents
- Structure Failure
- Building Collapse
- Supervisor Negligence
Although construction sites are dangerous places to work, that doesn’t excuse your supervisors from their responsibility to keep employees safe. It doesn’t mean you lose your right to justice should you get hurt.
