Representing The Best Interests Of Injured Workers At Construction Sites
Although every work performed involves different hazards, construction activities have more risks due to the nature of the activities performed. In fact, employers and contractors should train their personnel to use various work tools and safety practices before working in the field.
In addition, construction sites involve many parties that may contribute to an unsafe work environment. According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), accidents and incidents are preventable and foreseeable. At Chiacchia & Fleming, LLP, in Hamburg, we represent the best interests of injured workers like you. Our main goal is to recover the compensation you require to recover from your injuries and seek justice when needed.
Standing Ready To Fight For You
If injured while working at a construction site, you are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits. In addition, if your accident was due to the negligence of a party different from your employer, you may recover damages due to third-party liability.
The lawyers of Chiacchia & Fleming, LLP have recovered millions in compensation for our clients. However, it is of utmost importance to take your case in the early stages. Cases build on evidence, and our work is to back up your claim with as much proof as possible, mostly when multiple contractors and vendors are involved in your workplace.
The causes that lead to construction site accidents include the following:
- Using unsafe personal protective equipment or which fails to meet minimum safety requirements
- Electrocution or exposure to hazardous chemical substances
- Falls while working at heights or due to unsafe conditions (holes on the floor)
- Ceilings, walls or trenches collapse
