Construction Work Is Dangerous
Construction work has been the nation’s most dangerous occupation year after year. However, after the Bureau of Labor Statistics work fatality report was released for the 2010 year, construction was no longer listed as part of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Rather, it was listed as number eleven for the nation’s most dangerous jobs.
Although the construction industry nationwide isn’t as dangerous as it once was, because of the economy and the lack of construction jobs, many construction workers are still seriously injured or killed on the job in Florida every year.
Construction sites are loud, busy, and chaotic at times, and employers have a duty to make sure their employees are safe and that they are following safety regulations, using proper safety gear, and have been properly trained and educated for the type of work they are doing.
Our Fort Lauderdale construction attorneys fight for the rights of injured construction workers and the families of those who have been killed on the job. We believe that injured construction workers have rights to compensation and need help standing up to their employers and some of the largest insurance companies.
If you have been injured at work in Florida, it is important to hire a law firm with previous experience holding construction companies and contractors liable for injuries or fatalities, as it can be complex.
