Construction sites are busy and dangerous places, teeming with activity. Work at these locations is typically governed by important safety rules that protect workers and the public, and prevent serious injury and death. Construction accidents are far from uncommon, and they tend to cause very serious injuries that bring life-changing trauma to the victim and his or her family. Only an experienced attorney knows the safety rules, and can help you protect your rights, make informed decisions about what to do next and recover the compensation you will need.
Unsafe Conditions Lead to Serious Injuries
Landowners and general contractors have a duty to make sure that everyone working on a construction site is safe from unnecessary harm. Whenever a worker suffers a serious injury, it commonly involves an unsafe condition. Construction accidents tend to involve:
- Falls from or the collapse of faulty scaffolding or safety equipment
- Burns, including electrical burns and welding accidents
- Injuries from improperly handled industrial machinery
- Poor coordination or communication among subcontractors
- Ignoring safety rules
- Poorly trained workers
