Working in the construction industry is hard work, it is also dangerous. Every year thousands of construction workers are injured or even killed during accidents at construction sites. Injuries often result in long-term and life changing injuries. If you or a loved one are injured working at a construction site you should seek a consultation with a lawyer experienced in handling the claims of those who suffer injuries.
According to statistics compiled by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), one in five deaths in the workplace were construction workers. Most of these deaths are attributed to what is known in the insurance industry as the “fatal four”:
There are numerous ways to suffer an injury in a dangerous place like a construction site but these four causes accounted for 58.7% of all construction related deaths in America.
Construction sites, particularly large projects, often involve numerous parties that are potentially liable. From owners of the site to general and sub-contractors, engineers and architects, material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and construction management companies. Determining who the liable party is can be difficult and if you have been injured you need attorneys that are experienced in pursuing construction accident claims.
