Dangers of Construction Sites
You are a hardworking citizen who labors daily. You have actively contributed to the industries of America. When you work in construction and suffer an injury, we know that you have a lot at stake after a construction accident.
In the state of California, construction site owners and managers are required to ensure the safety of construction workers. According to strict federal laws and regulations outlined by the Occupational Safety and Health Act, employers must implement various safety protocols to reduce the risk of work-related injury. Unfortunately, appropriate precautions are not always taken. We stand ready to pursue justice on your behalf when an employer has failed to protect you.
Studies conducted by federal agencies have generally concluded that construction sites and construction zones are among the most dangerous workplace environments in the nation. Whether working on a construction site or a construction zone on a roadway, construction workers are more prone to injury and death than any other worker.
Common causes of construction injuries include:
- Defective industrial machinery
- Crushing accidents involving heavy machinery
- Falling from scaffolding, supports, or ladders
- Crane accidents, water truck accidents, or forklift accidents
- Other commercial vehicle accidents
- Chemical exposure and other toxic spills
- Welding accidents
