Laurence Banville, an experienced construction accident attorney from BanvilleLaw.com, was able to provide some insight on the options that construction fall victims have to consider.
“The Occupational Safety & Health Board (OSHA) frequently reports that falls are not only the most common, but also the most grave, construction site accidents. In fact, just in 2012, there were almost 280 construction worker deaths resulting from falls.
These falls can be a result of improperly-assembled scaffolding, or maybe even due to a poorly placed ladder. As a preventative measure, some states have even implemented specific regulation that deals with situations in which workers are performing tasks at heights.
But construction site falling accidents can be much simpler, and often manifest as slips and falls. A construction site is riddled with hazards; for example, some of the most common include:
- Slippery surfaces
- Flooring with poor traction
- Openings in walls and floors
After a workplace injury, a construction worker may pursue compensation via a workers’ comp claim. In some specific circumstances, they may even be able to file a lawsuit against negligent parties, even if a workers’ comp claim has been submitted.
It is recommended to contact an experienced construction fall attorney to discuss all of the legal options at the disposal of victims and their families.”
