When working on a job site, you already know that you're in one of the most dangerous fields that exists. However, that doesn't mean that it is acceptable for your employer to put you at risk for injury. There are multiple hazards on a job site that must be properly cared for in order for your employer to protect you.
If your employer doesn't take the proper precautions to protect you from injury, illness, or even death, then they can be held liable for your suffering. If you lost a loved one due to a construction accident, we can offer help and assistance by pursuing a wrongful death action on your family's behalf.

Common Construction Accidents
The issue with construction accidents is that, more often than not, they could have easily been avoided. By following the regulations laid out by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), companies can keep their workers safe. When a construction company cuts corners, that is when a person can end up severely injured. Here are some of the common construction site accidents that could have been avoided:
- Falls because a worker wasn't properly tied off
- Falling objects
- Heavy equipment related injuries
- Burn injuries from a fire or explosion
- Heat stroke
- Exposure to dangerous chemicals or substances without the proper provided protection
- Respiratory diseases because a worker wasn't given the proper protection
