Construction sites can be hazardous. The potential for accidents and injuries arises from any number of conditions: ladders and scaffolding, holes, unsecured decking and weather conditions, not to mention heavy machinery and dangerous equipment.
Though the law imposes numerous safety requirements on construction work sites, accidents still happen. An injury on the job can set you back for weeks or months, or even cause long-term disability. When you are injured on the job, it is critical to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to fully protect your rights.
