The federal government, through the occupational safety and health administration (osha), regulates work sites to protect workers’ safety, however injuries and death can occur for a variety of reasons. They can be caused by the negligence of other contractors or subcontractors working at the same site. They may also be caused by defective industrial equipment, such as defective cranes or scaffolding.
The amount of benefits available from workers’ compensation is rarely sufficient to replace wages. In addition, benefits make no allowance for the substantial pain and suffering caused to workers in construction site accidents. We will work hard to improve the quality of life diminished by the negligence of others. At bush law offices, our lawyers will work to seek additional compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
When a crane drops its load leading to chemical exposure, when an aerial lift malfunctions, or when pre-cast concrete crumbles above the heads of workers, it can result in serious injury. We will work with you to learn about how your situation has impacted your life. When we build your case, you will be able to rest assured that we will design it to attempt to get you the compensation that will help to put this incident behind you.
