Accidents on Construction & Job Sites
Holding Employers Responsible
As a hard-working and loyal employee, you should be able to reasonably
expect that your employer will, in turn, keep you safe on the job. Unfortunately,
this is not always the case, and many workplaces have dangerous areas
or situations that force employees to deal with numerous safety hazards
Representing Construction Site Employees
Statistically, construction sites are one of the most dangerous places
to work. In fact, 1 in 10 construction workers are injured every year,
and they have roughly a 1 in 200 chance of dying on the job over the course
of a 45-year career.
Some of the common accidents that occur on job site are:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Vehicle accidents
- Falling objects
- Falls from high places, such as scaffolding and roofing
- Exposure to hazardous materials and chemicals
- Defective and dangerous machinery

From slips and falls to heavy, dangerous machinery, the possibilities for
suffering injury while at work are everywhere. When the cause of your
injury is an employer's failure to properly follow rules and regulations,
our firm believes that the negligent party should be held fully responsible.

ensures that you are financially covered for injuries that are not your fault.
