Whether working several stories in the air, on roofs, or operating large equipment, construction workers face daily risks and hazards.
State, county, and local laws are in effect to ensure that construction workers are kept safe while on the job.
Employers have safety procedures at the work site to protect their employees from construction site accidents.
Even with these safeguards, workers must also ensure their safety.
Construction workers must wear the proper uniform, operate equipment in a safe manner, and obtain the proper licenses and certifications to ensure that they are qualified for working on the job.
However, there are certain situations that occur when employers are clearly at fault.
There are instances where an employer has not provided the proper safety procedures as required by law, and an employee becomes injured. There are situations where the fault is not so clear cut.
Regardless of the situation, a lawyer experienced with handling construction site accident cases should be contacted to evaluate and review the case.
