What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Construction Accident Risks

Construction sites are filled with a flurry of activity. Dozens or even hundreds of workers may all be working on the same site at once, accompanied by heavy machinery and materials, power tools, and other construction equipment. While all construction companies operate under a safety code, sometimes safety breaches are not immediately addressed as they should be, or workers are not given the proper safety training. These issues can lead to serious accidents, some of which may even prove fatal.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a construction accident, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for your accident-related damages. Contact the Jacksonville construction accident lawyers of the Law Offices of Donald Guthrie today at 904-296-1088 for more information.

Potential Construction Hazards

There are many different factors that can lead to an accident on a construction site. Some of the most common safety hazards include:

  • Employees not supplied with proper safety gear
  • Machinery or tools are defective
  • Safety guidelines are not enforced by the management
  • Workers are not properly trained in work safety or accident prevention
  • Danger areas are not properly marked off
  • Miscommunication between workers

Any of these hazards can greatly increase the chance of a construction accident. Workers who are injured on the job may be put out of work for weeks, months, or even years. If you or someone you know has been injured on site, you may be eligible to receive compensation. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you fight for your right to payment for your injuries and damages, including medical bills, lost wages from time off of work, recovery costs, disability payments, and pain and suffering.
