Grand Junction Construction Site Accidents Lawyer
Construction sites, by their very nature, can be dangerous places because they typically have heavy machinery regularly operating, unclear or changing walkways and structures and various construction materials regularly moving about the site. While there are a number of federal regulations in place to try to make construction sites as safe as possible, unfortunately, these regulations are not always followed, and consequently, construction site accidents occur. When these accidents are caused by any type of negligence or reckless behavior, accident victims will likely be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, mental anguish and other losses.
Causes of Construction Site Accidents
Some of the specific types of negligence that may cause construction site accidents include (but are not limited to):
- Construction workers’ inexperience or lack of training
- Construction site supervisors’ failure to properly set up the site and/or manage the ongoing safety issues associated with the site
- Lack of the proper personal protective gear for workers
- Failure to properly maintain construction vehicles and/or machinery (like forklifts, compressors, punch presses, etc.)
- Failure to properly store chemicals or other hazardous materials.
