A construction site should be safe like any other workplace. It is reasonable to expect the site owner to take the necessary steps to assure your safety. There are multiple federal and state regulations in place to protect you on a construction site. Too often, construction companies cut corners and bypass safety regulations to save time and money. If you are injured on a construction site, you should first see to your injuries, and then consult with an experienced Construction Accident Attorney.
Your attorney will know how to assist you for a construction injury. Many workers are reluctant to seek for fair compensation because they fear the loss of employment. They may also be concerned that they will lose out on future construction opportunities, especially if they are a subcontractor. Unfortunately, when you do not retain an attorney, the construction company and its attorneys will know they have the upper hand.
