Legal Claims We Can Assist You With
A construction accident lawyer is essential since construction zones are inherently dangerous. As buildings go up, they can be insecure and home to exposed wires, ungrounded electrical systems, exposed nails, toxic substances, and temporary structures that are not always sturdy and safe. Heavy materials and tools present at work sites only serve to make them more dangerous to bystanders.
Employer Obligations Our Accident Lawyers Can Enforce
Construction areas can be dangerous. However, your employer always has an obligation to keep you safe. When an employer fails to meet that obligation, you may be owed significant compensation.
Exposed nails, ungrounded electrical systems, insufficient employee training, improper safety procedures, heavy materials, and tools can all cause serious injuries at construction areas.
Your employer is required to do everything in their power to ensure the work site is as safe for the crew as possible.
