Wrongful Death and Worksite Accident Attorney of Beaumont
Preventable worksite injuries are a common occurrence. According to OSHA, an average of 13 workers are killed per day on the jobsite and nearly 4 million are seriously injured each year. Whether caused by an employer, contractor, or sub-contractor, each has a duty to provide a safe working environment for those they work around. Employers and contractors also have an obligation to ensure that their workers are properly trained and that the equipment they use is safe.
Worksite accidents come in a variety of forms and can result in wrongful death. Some include improper warning signs, falls, crane operation, scaffolding and structure collapse, electrocution, fires, explosions, equipment malfunction, unsafe working conditions, failure to provide safety equipment, failure to properly train and supervise workers, failure to follow safety protocol, and co-worker negligence. Many times, companies know about these hazards and fail to take the necessary steps to remedy them before an accident occurs.
