Representing Workers Injured Due to Workplace Safety Violations
Construction sites, industrial plants and factories are dangerous. Workers know this better than anyone else. Every year, hundreds of workers suffer injuries ranging from broken bones to injured backs and sometimes premature death.
Several things contribute to workplace accidents. Employer negligence is only one possible cause; negligence on the part of subcontractor work crews can also lead to worker injury. Faulty equipment or defective machinery can cause injuries, and defective building products may also be to blame.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established regulations to try to ensure worker safety. OSHA regulations cover all types of workplaces. As employers, construction companies that fail to comply with OSHA safety regulations can be held liable for injuries that occur as a result.
If you or a family member was injured at work, tough questions must be asked. You need an experienced attorney to ask them, an attorney who understands how to investigate and prove the case for OSHA violations and safety hazards. That is where the lawyers at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner come in.
