Riverside & San Bernardino Construction Accident Lawyers

Peach & Weathers Top Rated Personal Injury Attorneys

Common sense actions could help reduce the number of construction accidents. Clearing away debris and stowing tools would eliminate major causes of accidents at building and roadway work sites. Providing adequate training to subcontractors and day laborers would also help prevent accidents. However, contractors and subcontractors ignore OSHA requirements in an effort to save money. As a result, people get injured.
