The health and safety of employees and visitors at a construction site is critical to the success of the project. Any type of accident injuries can stop construction and delay the project, causing the property owner a loss of time, money and resources. More importantly, the long-term health of the injured worker can be jeopardized by the accident for the rest of his or her life.
Farah & Farah, P.A. represents construction workers who have been injured at their workplaces. Our Jacksonville construction accident injury lawyers also speak for people who have been hurt while visiting a construction site.
Construction site injuries can be caused by accidents, negligence, willful misconduct, or worker irresponsibility. For example, a collapsed scaffold or crane, falling piece of debris, electrocution, exposure to a hazardous chemical, or a defective piece of equipment can cause serious injury or death. In addition, if a worker is not properly trained to perform a task, it puts all of the workers at the construction site at risk for injury.
