Over 60 Years of Combined Experience In Personal Injury Law

Man injured in a construction accident

A 60-year old construction worker was in serious condition when a porch overhang fell on him, crushing him under the weight of the structure. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital with back and neck injuries.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports indicate that fatal construction accidents have actually been declining for the past few years. Even though this sounds like good news, it may reflect a drop in total number of employees due to downturns in the construction industry and not because of enforcement of safer measures.

Construction workers have a right to a safe working environment and are protected by Cal-OSHA and OSHA.T Federal agencies, which are called upon to investigate any type of construction accident and determine if the employer was negligent and responsible for the accident.

If you are involved in an on-the-job construction accident, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who can determine how much you are entitled to recover in damages, expenses and pain and suffering.
