When working on a construction site, there are many opportunities for accidents and injuries to happen. It is important in any construction injury case to examine the safety standards that apply and that may help establish any negligence that may have led to the accident. There is a long list of injuries and accidents that can occur on a construction site, including but not limited to:
- Trench collapse
- Forklift and man-lift
- Work-site falls and unguarded drop openings,
- Failure to use fall protection
- Unstable construction materials and scaffolding
- Crane accidents
- Falling materials
- Chemical spills or burns
Even though construction sites are, by their very nature, dangerous places to work, that does not eliminate the employer's responsibility to keep employees, contractors and the public safe. And it doesn’t mean you lose your right to justice should you get hurt. It is crucial to work with an attorney who will conduct a proper investigation and evaluate all the evidence to properly pursue your claim.
