Construction Injuries On the Job
Fighting Back Against Unsafe Working Conditions
There are many situations in which workers are injured while on the job. Construction sites provide a great opportunity for employment and development; however, there are many safety hazards that these work opportunities pose. Without the proper safety equipment, training, and instruction, workers could be susceptible to severe injuries.
Also, when co-workers do not follow safety protocol, the results can be catastrophic. There is a great deal of heavy machinery that is used on construction job sites, and there is the potential for objects to fall from great heights when a protocol is not followed.
Other and equally common accidents on constructions sites can be related to:
- Slip and falls
- Crushing injuries
- Fires and explosions
- Trench collapses
- Machinery accidents
It's important that you have knowledgeable professionals on your side to prove in a courtroom or at a settlement table that these injuries were the fault of your employer or other supervisory party. Large companies fight back hard, and without the proper presentation, you may be ignored.
