Because construction sites very often have a great deal of material and
equipment around, the possibility of someone getting injured can increase.
The construction industry is heavily regulated by OSHA (Occupational Safety
and Health Administration) to ensure that proper safety procedures are
followed. Nevertheless, accidents do happen in construction sites. If
you or a loved one has suffered injury from a construction accident, seek
the guidance of our firm!
Who Can Be Held Liable?
A person working in this environment has the duty to take precautions to
avoid an injury. There can, however, be negligence on the part of others
which can lead to an accident.
All of the following, if it results in an injury, can be grounds for bringing
a claim against the employer:
- Failure to enforce hard hat regulations
- Poorly maintained equipment
- Improperly trained personnel
