Protecting Your Rights When Safety Violations Result In Injuries
Safety is a high priority in the construction industry. An accident on a construction site can have catastrophic results. This is why the federal government and the state of Illinois regulate safety requirements through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
The attorneys at Rosenberg, Eisenberg & Associates, LLC, know that a construction site can be one of the most dangerous places to work. When employers, contractors or supervisors fail to follow safety protocol, your life and health are at risk. If you have been injured while working construction, you have access to quality legal advocacy by calling 847-640-1676.
Representing Victims Of Construction Site Safety Violations
While the workers’ compensation system in Illinois exists to cover your medical bills and lost wages following a workplace injury, even this is not always sufficient in the face of devastating injuries from a construction accident. Often, these accidents are the result of violations of OSHA safety regulations, including the following most common offenses:
- Failing to provide and maintain appropriate personal protection equipment such as hard hats, fall arrest systems, nonslip shoes and gloves
- Failing to install guardrails on scaffolds and other elevated work sites to prevent falls
- Failing to ground electrical wires to avoid electrocution
- Inadequately shoring trenches and pits against collapse
- Failing to prevent tools and debris from falling onto workers and bystanders below
- Failing to provide regular, adequate safety training for employees
