Construction workers are the lifeblood of the United States, ensuring that our infrastructure is properly built. From houses and buildings to roads and bridges, the men and women who work in construction are truly heroes.
But they are also working in very dangerous jobs. There are countless ways someone can get hurt on a construction site, and while we hope if never happens, we know that sometimes it will.
If you need a construction accident attorney in Miami Gardens, the Dante Law Firm is standing by to help. We know any injury that keeps you from working can be stressful, so let us make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
When it comes to construction site accidents, we know how dangerous the conditions can be. Here is a breakdown from OSHA of what they call the “Fatal Four,” the kinds of construction accidents responsible for more than half of construction worker deaths.
Anyone who works in construction knows that there are risks. Injuries are going to happen. When they do, workers’ compensation should cover medical expenses as well as most of the income lost while someone is out of work. Sometimes, though, there are injuries that absolutely should not have happened.
If a construction company does not train employees properly on ALL equipment, people are much more likely to get hurt.
Construction employees should always be provided with the safety equipment necessary for their jobs. From proper eyewear and gloves to helmets and boots, these are essential items to keep people safe.
If someone is careless when using equipment, or operating while distracted or impaired, everyone around them is in danger.
In all of these cases, reckless behavior can significantly increase the likelihood of an accident on a construction site. If you are hurt, you could end up with long recovery times and possibly even a disability that could impact your future earning ability. We don’t think it’s fair that someone else’s negligence should ruin your financial livelihood.
