Protecting Construction Workers’ Rights In Hole And Trench Accident Injuries
Holes and trenches on a construction site can present significant hazards for workers. There are strict state and federal guidelines in place to protect worker safety. Falls into holes or trenches, trench collapses and other issues can lead to serious injuries, and it is the general contractor’s responsibility to see that all necessary precautions have been taken.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a construction site accident, it is important that you have an experienced attorney representing you at all times. General contractors and their insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid responsibility for these claims, and having the right legal representation will help to ensure that your rights are protected.
