Construction Accident Lawyers in Fort Worth
Construction work is one of the most accident prone professions in America. Usually on a construction site there are dozens of people rushing about with heavy equipment moving skids of materials and other objects. Each year the construction fatalities continue in spite of new and stronger safety measures.
Heavy objects can fall on a worker from several stories up. Inexperienced machinery operators may get careless causing injury to workers nearby. Contractors are always in a hurry to get this project finished and move on to the next. This can cause them to cut corners and lead to accidents. Taking the proper safety measures may not be a priority on a job site. If you were injured on a construction site, call the construction accident attorneys at Zinda Law Group of Fort Worth at 817-769-8442 for a free consultation today.
Avoiding Construction Accidents
By nature accidents cannot be avoided all the time. But construction companies do have a responsibility to their workers to do everything in their power to ensure safe working conditions. Often workers are aware that some of the safety regulations are not being followed, but they don’t say anything because they don’t want to lose their job.
It is very important that all safety measures are followed when working on high-rises or on rooftops. Harnesses and other equipment for workers should be in excellent condition. Ladders and scaffolding should be sturdy, but this is not always the case. Unfortunately for construction workers the equipment is sometimes worn out and in need of replacement.
Even though workers do have the right to refuse to climb up on unsafe scaffolding or work without the proper safety procedures, many workers just don’t want to jeopardize their job. And this is how many construction accidents occur. Each year in America thousands of workers are injured or killed in construction accidents.
Other causes of construction site accidents include explosions, fires, electric shock, faulty machinery, or worn-out equipment. Sometimes workers are exposed to toxic chemicals because the proper safety precautions were not followed by supervisors.
