Construction  Accident Lawyers

Construction site accidents are more common than people like to believe. These accidents may kill or injure workers onsite or even people visiting the site, working or playing in the vicinity. At Silva & Silva, our construction accident lawyers in Coral Gables, FL, have successfully handled a significant number of cases in this field.

Construction Site Safety Provisions

All construction companies are required to inspect their sites professionally and diligently. They must have safety programs, hire safety engineers and ensure that all their workers have adequate training. When an accident happens at a construction site, the owners, engineers, developers, architects, subcontractors, manufacturers, insurers, and/or the tools and equipment lessors may be held liable for not ensuring adequate safety provisions on-site or that the required safety equipment and tools were present. 

How Accidents Occur at Construction Sites

Defective or dangerous products that often cause construction site accidents are:

  • Cranes,
  • power tools
  • scaffolds
  • ladders
  • Hoses
  • Trucks
  • Other

For example, poor safety conditions can lead to falling objects that can sometimes be fatal. Crane operators may be careless and may knock down powerlines that result in the electrocution of innocent bystanders.
