"Every day in America, 13 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover. These are preventable tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy. American workers are not looking for a handout or a free lunch. They are looking for a good day's pay for a hard day's work. They just want to go to work, provide for their families, and get home in one piece." - Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis.
More than 4,500 construction workers are killed on the job every year. And almost a thousand times that number are injured. If you have been injured in a construction accident, or if you know a loved one who was injured or killed in a construction accident, contact the personal injury attorneys at Guest and Gray Law Firm so we can help you get the compensation that you deserve.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) is a branch of the United States Department of Labor which was created worksites across the country. OSHA has labeled the following causes of fatalities as the "fatal four." These are the four types of events most commonly responsible for workplace fatalities: falls, electrocutions, being struck by an object, and being caught in between two objects. And there are many laws and standards violated on worksites that result in injuries like inadequate scaffolding, faulty electrical work, improper machine guarding, failure to adequately control hazardous waste, defective machinery, and many, many more.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of the failure to properly maintain workplace safety, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. You may be entitled to compensation for any medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity and any pain and suffering you have gone through.
