Accident Lawyers

Accidents on work sites occur at a higher rate than the majority of people believe. These accidents can potentially kill or injure workers present there, as well as visitors, children, and others who work or play in the area. Silva & Silva’s construction accident attorneys in Miami Gardens, FL, have successfully litigated a significant number of claims in this area.

Construction Site Safety Provisions

All developers and construction companies are required to conduct thorough and professional site inspections. They must implement safety programs, hire safety engineers, and ensure that the employees receive the necessary training.

When an accident occurs on a construction site, the owners, developers, engineering technicians, manufacturers, subcontractors, architects, insurers, and/or tool & equipment lessors may be held legally responsible for failure to maintain adequate safeguards at the site or the necessary safety equipment and tools.

How Construction Site Accidents Occur

The following are some examples of dangerous or defective products that frequently cause construction site accidents:

  • Hoses
  • Power tools
  • Cranes
  • Scaffolds
  • Trucks
  • Ladders
  • Other

In some cases, unsafe working conditions can lead to falling objects, which can be life-threatening. Operators of cranes may be careless and the equipment colliding with power lines can electrocute innocent bystanders.
