Falls on Construction Sites Lawyers in Austin
Construction work zones rank high among the most dangerous places to work. They are wrought with hazards which can result in injury for both workers and visitors. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a high percentage of work-related accidents are connected to a construction zone. Employees in the construction field deserve representation by a legal professional when an accident causes injury or death.
Hazardous Conditions to Avoid
While construction work itself cannot be avoided, there are many hazardous conditions that should be prevented at all costs. It is an act of negligence when hazards are overlooked and employees are allowed to work. Many construction accidents involve scaffolding, roofing, building collapses, fire, explosion, faulty machinery, falling objects or debris, and exposure to toxic chemicals.
In order to avoid hazardous conditions, it is essential that construction sites be properly designed and inspected. It is also imperative that construction materials be properly stored and that hazards be properly marked. Employees and visitors of the site must be aware of the dangerous conditions facing them in order to decrease the possibility for accidents, injuries and even death.
Holding the Responsible Party Liable
When accidents are caused by another party’s negligence, poor decision making, or absentmindedness, you may be able to hold that party liable for the incident. Some victims of construction accidents do not take legal action because they are unaware of their right to do so. Do not let this happen to you! Any behavior that could be viewed as negligent or dangerous deserves to be brought to the attention of a legal professional.
