Investigating Your Accident to Determine Liability
Many construction workers work under the assumption that management has taken all the proper precautions to ensure their job site and equipment are safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. An accident can leave victims with debilitating injuries, causing them to miss work and, in turn, miss pay. Depending on the type of injury, it’s possible that the worker may never be able to return to their line of work.
A construction accident may occur in a number of different ways, such as:
Falls from height (ladder or scaffolding)
Slips and falls
Falling or flying objects
