Jacksonville Construction Accident Lawyers
At the Law Offices of Donald D. Guthrie, our Jacksonville construction accident attorneys believe that all workers should be able to feel at least a measure of safety at their job. Thus, despite the dangers of the construction industry, construction workers have been able to feel a greater sense of safety due to the passage of the Occupational Health and Safety Act in 1970, which established specific guidelines for the degree of responsibility a contractor or property owner has with regards to maintaining a safe work site. The effect was a marked decrease in incidents at construction sites and a greater degree of overall safety for construction employees, as well as visitors, clients, passersby, neighbors, and anyone else that works and lives in and around these frequently hazardous locations.
Sadly, accidents still happen and, as a result of the construction site environment, they often cause serious injuries in the process. Whether you are an injured worker who is seeking guidance with a workers’ compensation claim or an outside party interested in pursuing a lawsuit in order to recover compensation for your losses, our experienced Jacksonville construction accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Donald D. Guthrie can answer your questions and potentially help you. To learn more about your rights and legal options, call us today at (904) 296-1088.
Types of Construction Accidents
Construction sites are inherently dangerous places which are constantly changing, moving, and shifting, making them a common location for accidental injury. While there are a number of hazards on a work site which can lead to an incident, the following are some of the most common causes of injury.
- Equipment malfunction
- Employer negligence
- Slip and fall
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Lifting injuries
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Head and brain injuries
- Wrongful death
If you are suffering from the effects of these injuries and losses, you may not be the one responsible for shouldering all of the consequences. Our attorneys believe that the party whose negligence caused such an accident should be the ones held accountable.
