Everyone knows that walking through or near construction sites can be dangerous, but most people assume that the various companies in and around a construction site are operating up-to-code and compliant with all regulatory standards. This isn’t always the case, and as a result thousands of everyday people suffer injuries each year as a result of someone operating negligently on or near a construction site.
Common Causes of Construction Site Injuries:
Tripping or Falling
Unsecure platforms, collapsing floors, dangerous fencing, walkways, etc can lead to nasty falls and long-lasting injuries.
Unsafe Use of Equipment:
Companies on construction sites rely on heavy-duty machinery to help them accomplish a variety of tasks. When an operator uses equipment negligently it can be very hazardous to those around or near the machinery
Negligence and Unsafe Conditions:
A worksite and the surrounding area must be handled in certain ways to ensure accidents can be prevented, but some organizations allow conditions to become unsafe either as a cost-cutting measure or due to simple negligence. This, too, can lead to a serious personal injury.
Everyone who goes on or walks near a construction site has the right to assume others will adhere to a safe standard of care.
When this is not the case and serious injuries occur, you may be entitled to compensation. A San Diego construction accident lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve, and help you do so in a civil, organized, and straight-forward manner.
