Construction Accidents
general contractor construction accidents

Due to the inherent dangers that are associated with construction work, the labor laws are designed to protect the rights of construction workers to insure a safe workplace environment.  Workers that are injured after falling from elevated heights such as ladders and/or scaffolds are afforded strict liability protection under the labor law against the owner and general contractor of a construction project, so long as the worker was not the sole proximate cause of their own accident and fall. The property owner and general contractor are responsible to provide a safe work place and to provide the necessary safety equipment  to protect the workers from injury. Due to the serious and life threatening injuries and substantial economic losses,  that are commonly sustained by workers in construction accidents, it is imperative to have legal representation to protect your rights and to maximize your potential recovery.
