Palm Coast Construction Site Accident Attorney
Construction sites can be an extremely dangerous place to work or visit. When the owners and developers act responsibly, taking the necessary precautions, the risk of being injured on the job site is greatly reduced. However, if the owners and developers are negligent or reckless in preparing for the potential risk, a worker or private individual can be critically harmed. These consequences can have devastating effects including unnecessary medical bills, pain and suffering and time away from work.
Property owners and developers have an obligation to ensure that the equipment on constructions sites are properly maintained, the debris and toxic substances are controlled, safety codes are enforced, potential dangers and unsafe areas have signage conspicuously posted, and workers have the necessary training and equipment to complete the job safely. If these precautions have been neglected and you are injured in a construction site accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages, medical bills and other expenses.
