Construction sites are some of the most dangerous work places in the country. The most dangerous accidents on construction sites are often the result of falls from high places, such as ladders, scaffolding, and roofs. At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, Ltd., we protect the rights of workers who have been seriously injured in construction accidents. Our lawyers use creative solutions in and out of the courtroom in order to maximize the compensation for our clients after a falling accident.
Falls on residential and commercial construction sites can lead to life-altering brain and spinal cord injuries. OSHA regulations set standard safety practices for all construction sites, but injuries from falls are still some of the most common construction accidents. Contact us today to find out how you can protect yourself and recover after a ladder, scaffolding or roofing injury.
Construction companies must abide by the safety regulations set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA. Employers that fail to follow OSHA regulations are not doing everything they can to prevent construction accident injuries. There must be a guard on all moving parts and proper hazard communication in order to prevent falling accidents. An OSHA violation that results in a serious spinal cord injury is grounds for a lawsuit.
Ladder, scaffolding and roofing accidents are often the result of:
- Lack of safety equipment
- Lack of training
- Failure to follow proper procedures
- OSHA violations
In the case of dangerous falls in construction site accidents, it is important to call an attorney as soon as possible. At DeLuca and Weizenbaum, the sooner we are notified of an accident, the sooner our lawyers can begin an investigation, including photographs, witness testimony, and looking into activity logs such as time sheets and completed work. There are a lot of parties involved in construction sites, and it can be difficult to locate the right people if a construction accident victim waits too long to take action.
