Dubbed ‘The Fatal Four’ by OSHA, many construction-related injuries occur by electrocution, being trapped between two objects, falls and being struck up against an object. Worksites are already dangerous places for workers to earn their paycheck, but those hazards are intensified when employers are negligent in maintaining reasonably safe work equipment and environments.
A highly skilled Glendale construction accident attorney, Howard Craig Kornberg works diligently to bring construction site owners and third parties involved with worker accidents to justice. The level of accountability construction managers and site owners are held to far exceeds the conditions they leave their workers to deal with, which is ridiculous at best.
Working on large construction projects requires long hours of physically commanding labor, many times wages being paid far less than workers deserve. The dangers of working on these construction projects are very real, especially when workers are lifting heavy objects while standing on unstable scaffolding. We can go on and on about the dangers and potential injuries one can suffer, but you get the gist.
Unless a third-party contractor or company caused your injury, most victims will undergo the Worker’s Compensation process. This entails filing a claim with the appropriate state agency, with no claim being an automatic approval. Construction companies do carry liability insurance to cover workers, however sometimes it’s inadequate. Nonetheless, filing Worker’s Compensation benefits is the only recourse available to injured workers, especially when negligence can be proven.
Those claims denied, or those stemming from third-party negligence, automatically qualify for the personal injury litigation process. Howard Craig Kornberg is a Glendale construction accident attorney well-versed in personal injury law, collecting no fees until you win your case.
