It would seem reasonable to assume that with the advent of modern construction equipment and building techniques that fewer and fewer workers should suffer injury on the job. Unfortunately this is not the case. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) speculates that over 1,000 construction workers will suffer a work-related death this year, most of which could have been prevented. Although every construction worker is trained in basic safety precautions for handling dangerous materials, proper machine operation, and fundamental hazard recognition, accidents still occur. Improperly labeled hazardous materials, faulty tools and equipment, and defective machines can make working on a construction site as deadly and dangerous as battlefield in a war zone. No matter what state you’re in, if you are injured in a construction site accident and can’t work, contact a knowledgeable, experienced construction site accident lawyer today. It may be the wisest decision you will ever make.
