No one expects to get hurt on the job, but workplace and construction site accidents can and do happen. Construction and employment-related injuries can include injury resulting from construction companies, businesses, and government agencies who neglected regulations and codes; injury from neglect of worker safety by a property owner, subcontractor, or contractor involved with a construction site; motor vehicle accidents in a company car or vehicle; as well as injury caused by a defective product. Tim Caress and Caress Law Group regularly handle cases involving construction and workplace accidents, including drivers, passengers, employees, contractors, sub-contractors and union workers who have been injured, and we fully understand the complexities and challenges that these cases present.
Workplace injuries can occur in many ways, including exposure to asbestos, falls from construction sites, crane accidents, electrical accidents, refinery explosions, scissor-lift accidents, equipment accidents, trench collapses, and machinery malfunctions. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that one out of every ten construction workers is accidentally injured every year, and 11,200 of those accidents result in disability. It is not surprising, then, that workplace accidents are a leading cause of death in the United States.
