Construction Site Injuries
Construction sites have always been one of the most dangerous places to work. Despite development of improved safety precautions and strict adherence to new mandated regulations construction site injuries are surprisingly still a relatively common occurrence.
1 in every 10 construction workers get injured annually
Often times, construction site accidents are a result of the failure to comply with OSHA workplace safety regulations. Other accidents can be traced to identified defects in the equipment, or poor training provided by their respective subcontractors. In any case, there is always the causality that leads to damage.
39% – Falls
8% – Struck by an object
7% – Electrocution
5% – Caught in or between an object or a piece of equipment
Recognizing the need for proper compensation for victims in this field, Texas law has since allowed affected workers to recover for injuries suffered on construction sites as a result of the negligence of another. Even so, there are companies who do not abide by such regulations. That is where we come in.
