INJURED IN A CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT? LET US HELP YOU
Whether you work on a construction site or simply pass by a construction area, safety rules are specifically designed to protect your life and safety. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has created laws and regulations to protect workers and other individuals present at a construction site. Unfortunately, construction sites are notoriously dangerous, both for workers and bystanders in the construction area. Crucial OSHA regulations and safety rules are often ignored or violated, resulting in grave injuries or even wrongful deaths at the construction site.
WHO IS AT FAULT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT?
Construction sites typically involve different groups of workers using power tools and heavy machinery and equipment to perform dangerous and demanding activities, with little or no coordination, all while trying to meet stressful deadlines.
Due to construction and industrial accidents, these cases often have complex regulatory and factual issues, and finding the guilty parties is a challenging task for injured parties and their families.
Even for the most cautious construction workers, dangers still exist. There are countless hazards that they must watch out for every day, including, but not limited to:
Safety rules violations involving any of these hazards constitute a very high risk of severe injury or death for people at or near the construction site, including workers and the general public. Sadly, safety rules violations at construction sites result in catastrophic injuries or fatalities that devastate families more often than they should. Even when a person survives a construction site accident, injuries at construction sites tend to be severe and disastrous with a permanent and life-changing effect.
Even in cases where state law may limit an employee’s ability to sue their employer, employees may still have claims against other third parties. Site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and other entities may be at fault and legally liable for worksite injuries.
Therefore, in addition to workers’ compensation benefits, you may be entitled to additional damages for lost income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disability, scarring or disfigurement, and loss of ability to enjoy life. Families of workers killed in industrial accidents often have the right to pursue wrongful death claims.
However, identifying and locating the parties who caused or contributed to a construction accident is a complicated process that requires prompt action and expertise. Proper and rapid steps must be taken to preserve crucial evidence since memories may fade, evidence may disappear, witnesses may become uncooperative or forgetful, videos and photos may be deleted, and documents and records may be discarded. The Remudo Law Firm has extensive experience representing individuals injured or killed on construction sites and other industrial settings.
