Those of us who work white collar jobs in offices often forget the danger our skilled contractors and laborers put themselves in each day at construction sites, inside mechanical rooms, and in road construction areas. Crane operators, carpenters, framers, mechanical contractors, HVAC technicians, T&B professionals, painters, masons, welders, heavy equipment operators, plumbers, roofers and other hard working men and women are doing excellent work day in and day out. These construction workers work hard and have the right to work in a safe environment so they can go home each night to their families.
We get asked a lot of questions about personal injury accidents on construction sites. Clients ask “can I sue for my personal injuries after a construction accident” and “how can I find a construction accident lawyer?” There’s a reason folks asks these Riverview construction accident questions. It is because construction is one of the most dangerous lines of work in the U.S. 20% of all deaths at work happen on a construction site according to OSHA. Falls from heights like falling off a roof are common and preventable construction accidents, as are situations where construction workers are caught underneath a collapsing object or piece of equipment. Unfortunately, electrocutions are still common amongst construction workers. Another unfortunate circumstance is a situation where a pallet of bricks, girder, or other construction material strikes or falls on a laborer.
Despite the precautions taken by most conscientious managers, foreman and site owners, sometimes negligence is to blame for a construction wrongful death or serious construction personal injury.
