It is the responsibility of construction companies and contractors to ensure their sites are safe to prevent injuries to both their employees and those that pass through their projects. When the proper safety precautions are not utilized, serious injuries and even death, can occur. At Burnside Law Firm, we strive to help those injured in construction accidents receive the compensation they deserve when the property owners and contractors create hazardous or unsafe conditions.
Any construction site can have a multitude of hazards, which is why there are strict regulations on how they must be managed. Whether it is a new building or renovations on an existing structure, safety precautions must be in place to prevent injuries. OSHA has extensive rules that construction sites must follow for the protection of the workers, but it is also important that measures are taken to ensure that anyone passing by or through a construction site is protected. When accidents and injuries occur that should have been prevented, the victim or their family may be able to pursue compensation from the property owner or construction company.
Unsafe Construction Site Injuries and Fatal Accidents
Due to the volatile nature of construction sites, when injuries do occur, they are often very serious or fatal. Heavy equipment and moving objects can cause extensive injuries in a moment’s time. When accidents occur due to unsafe conditions on these sites, the injuries sustained can have lifetime consequences, both for the victim and their loved ones.
