A CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT MAY BE THE FAULT OF YOUR EMPLOYER
A construction site has many hazards, but that does not mean a property owner is free of responsibility for providing a safe environment. A property owner who does not use due care may be liable for your injuries. Typical sources of accidents include:
Improper maintenance of equipment
Failure to store or treat dangerous chemicals and other substances
Excessive work shifts and fatigue
Failure to follow safety requirements or guidelines
Improper instructions by a supervisor
Failure to provide safety clothing
Exposure to fumes or gases
Every case is different, and it is important to speak to an attorney about the details of the accident in which you were involved as soon as possible.
INJURIES FROM NEGLIGENCE MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR COMPENSATION
Injuries that occur on commercial or industrial property can range from minor to lifelong debilitating conditions. Harms that may not seem serious at first can often require long rehabilitation periods and have permanent effects. Common injuries include:
Back and muscle strains
Burns, including chemical burns
Broken bones and trauma injuries
Blurred or reduced vision
Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
Lung injuries from exposure to unsafe substances or wearing improper safety equipment
Permanent or lengthy conditions may mean reduced earning capacity and missed work. The attorneys at Young Wooldridge, LLP can review every harm, ranging from slip and falls to cases involving wrongful death.
OILFIELDS ARE PRONE TO MAJOR ACCIDENTS

Improperly secured equipment
Lack of adequate safety equipment
Exposure to fumes
Lack of adequate training
Prolonged exposure to heat and sun
The difficult labor, long hours and heavy equipment often lead to dangerous conditions at the site. If you were injured, you may face heavy medical expenses, reduced earning capacity and missed work time.
