A Construction Accident May Be Due To The Negligence of Another Party

- Improper cleanup
- 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
