Construction Site Injuries
Construction site accidents are very common. Heavy equipment can result in very serious injuries due to the heavy equipment in use on job sites and the numerous people working at the same time. In most states, including Indiana, workers compensation laws can make it difficult for a person to obtain pain and suffering compensation if injured while working.
Additionally, federal guidelines as detailed in OSHA are complicated and complex. At Shaw Law we deal with these complex construction laws on a daily basis to get you the most compensation to which you are entitled.
In most construction site accidents there are multiple different companies working on a job site at the same time. As a result, there can be multiple companies responsible for the injuries caused by a worker on a job site.
Defective equipment also plays a role. Many construction site injuries are the result of defective construction equipment such as defective cranes, fork lifts, elevators, ladders, tools and roof collapse.
Another common type of injury occurs when a construction worker on the job site strikes another worker with a piece of machinery or building material. Construction sites are dangerous and it is well know that injuries can take place. The project manager of a construction site must make sure that safety procedures are followed at all times. Unfortunately many construction sites do not implement safety procedures and this is when people get injured.
Here at Shaw Law, we believe that every accident is preventable including construction site accidents and injuries. Every accident is due to someone's fault. You should not have to bear the brunt of the negligence of someone else.
