No matter what location is, if you are seriously injured in a construction site accident and can’t work, contact a knowledgeable, experienced construction site accident lawyer today.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cites that over 1,000 of construction site workers will suffer a work-related fatality this year and many will suffer from debilitating injuries, many of which could have been averted. Although construction workers are skilled and are conditioned in basic safety safeguards for handling perilous materials and proper machine operation, accidents still occur. Faulty materials, inferior tools and equipment, and worn out machines can make being employed on a construction site lethal. Employers cut corners on enforcement of safety regulations and create an unsafe work environment for their employees. General contractors often look the other way when subcontractors willfully violate safety regulations and put their employees in harms way.
In Texas, all tiers of a construction site project can be responsible for work place injuries or fatalities. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed as the result of a construction site accident, the lawyers at Pope & Taylor can help you.
