Construction workers are strong and important members of our community. Each day on the job, they face physical dangers and must be vigilant to avoid hazards. They must be constantly aware of their surroundings, watching for falling or sharp objects, electrical and mechanical hazards, and more—all this, while doing their job with expertise and precision. Construction workers rely on their employers and supervisors to ensure all safety measures are in place to reduce their job risks. When construction accidents occur because of someone else’s mistakes or neglect, these brave and diligent workers deserve the right to obtain compensation for their losses.

While numerous dangers can result in construction accidents, the majority of such accidents are the result of structural collapses, falls, explosions, fires, falling or otherwise dangerous objects, chemical exposure, defective or malfunctioning machinery or equipment, electrocution, and similar dangers. These can harm equipment operators, painters, builders, welders, sheet metal workers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and other construction professionals.

Too often, hazards at construction sites are caused
by one or more of the following:

  • Insufficient workers on a construction site
  • Inadequate or insufficient training for construction workers
  • Inadequate use of safety equipment or protocols on a construction site
  • Negligence or errors made by workers, contractors, equipment
  • suppliers, product manufacturers, or another party
  • Damaged, defective or malfunctioning equipment or tools
  • Substance abuse on the job

In any of these or similar situations, those responsible can be held accountable and brought to justice for their wrongdoing or negligence.
