Common sense actions could help reduce the number of construction accidents. Clearing away debris and stowing tools would eliminate major causes of accidents at building and roadway work sites. Providing adequate training to subcontractors and day laborers would also help prevent accidents. However, contractors and subcontractors ignore OSHA requirements in an effort to save money. As a result, people get injured.
At Peach & Weathers, our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience helping people obtain compensation for their injuries, medical bills, and lost income. Many of these clients have been construction workers and passersby. Many of them have sustained catastrophic injuries. Many have become permanently disabled because of their injury, unable to work or attend school for retraining. A few have died from their injuries, leaving behind a family grieving over the wrongful death
of their loved one.
