Were you or a loved one injured in a construction accident?

It may be time to contact an experienced construction accident lawyer.

The construction industry has long been a mainstay in the U.S. economy, as it represents investment in infrastructure and property, not to mention that it keeps thousands of people employed. However, construction work is also one of the most dangerous occupations in existence, primarily because workers are exposed to many types of serious hazards and can lead to serious injury, illness or fatality.

Were OSHA Safety Regulations Violated?

Every state has a system of safety laws established under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, and these regulations apply to work done at construction sites. While these laws exist to provide medical care and financial benefits to injured construction workers and families of construction workers who have been killed, there are limits to the amount of benefits that may be obtained.

Should you file a construction accident lawsuit?

OSHA regulations are not the only legal standards to which a property owner, general contractor, or sub-contractor may be held in determining liability for a construction accident. In certain situations, it may also be possible to file a personal injury lawsuit. For instance, if a working environment is unreasonably dangerous as a result of negligence or recklessness by the employer and a construction worker is seriously injured or killed, it could give rise to a civil lawsuit. In addition, if a third party enters a construction site and causes an accident that leads to a serious injury or a fatality, that construction worker or the worker’s family could pursue a lawsuit for damages.
