Construction sites are dangerous, and accidents can happen

Imagine you are a construction worker, and you get to your work site just like you have on any other day during your career. Everything seems like a normal day. You work for a few hours and there haven't been any hiccups, but when you return from your lunch break, you have to go a couple of stories up a new building that is being constructed on the site. While you're up there, disaster strikes. You fall and suffer some serious injuries as a result.

Sadly, this imaginary situation isn't just a mental picture for many people in this country. Instead, there are people who have lived it, suffering gruesome injuries -- or not surviving at all -- at the hands of a construction accident.

Construction sites are inherently dangerous places that have precarious heights and powerful equipment. There could be heavy machinery; potent substances and flammable or explosive; and numerous other risky situations that leave construction workers in dangerous situations. This is why safety protocols, procedures and rules are very important in the construction industry. Any violation of these rules could lead to an accident -- and it could make certain parties liable for the harm that comes to a construction worker.

These accidents demand a full investigation, and for the injured party or the loved one of an affected party, they need legal representation to ensure their rights are protected and their interests are being respected. At Orin J. Cohen Law, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to help those affected by a construction accident.
