Construction Site Accident
A construction site can be a dangerous place for both those who are working there and those who may be visiting or passing by. Site owners and managers are responsible for making the site as safe as possible and ensuring that everyone working and using the site are following strict safety protocols. This includes proper signage, the right personal protective equipment, and marking dangerous restricted areas among other things. These rules and regulations are put in place to prevent accidents and injuries. Sometimes, though, important safety measures are overlooked or willfully ignored and the results can be devastating injuries or even death. If you or a loved one have been injured on a construction site, we can help you get the fair compensation that you deserve.
Are You a Construction Worker Who Has Been Injured?
Construction work is some of the most dangerous and demanding work out there today. Construction workers often work with dangerous power tools, heavy machinery, and all at great heights. Most construction sites and those working on them are diligent about following safety protocols in order to reduce the risk of injury. Sometimes, though, their bosses aren’t as diligent or cautions as they should be. Workers may be asked to overlook certain safety measures in an effort to cut corners or site managers might not be well-versed on what measures are appropriate for their job site. In these cases, workers may become injured, and often severely. In some cases, workers may be entitled to worker’s compensation and separate compensation through a personal injury claim.

Were You Injured When Visiting or Passing By a Construction Site?
It’s not just workers who can be injured on a construction site. Visitors and those simply passing by a site could be at risk, as well. Falling debris, out of control machinery, and unlabeled safety hazards could result in injuries that are serious and life-changing. The medical bills associated with injuries like these can be huge, and you shouldn’t be left holding the bill for someone else’s negligence on a job site. If you or a loved one have been injured on a construction site, it’s important that you contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation that can help you cover the cost of your injuries as well as time lost on your job among other damages.
