Construction Litigation Attorneys
In Key West, FL
Most people are shocked to learn just how common construction site injuries and deaths are. People working on construction sites (as well as others passing through, playing, or moving around in that area) may be injured or killed due to these accidents. Silva & Silva’s construction law attorneys in Key West have successfully handled hundreds of similar cases.
Safety Precautions On Construction Sites
Construction companies must conduct site inspections and implement safety measures, hire safety engineers, and ensure that they have a well-trained workforce. At least one party might be held responsible if an accident happens on a construction site. If there weren’t adequate safety precautions in place at the worksite, it can risk the safety of innocent people not connected with the project. Even lessors of any equipment or machinery used at the construction site can be held responsible for accidents that occur. If they can’t supply the appropriate safety gear and supplies, that might be a factor against their interests.
Causes of Construction Site Accidents
Examples of possibly dangerous or faulty construction equipment include the following:
- Heavy-duty machines
- Ladders or scaffolding
- Personal safety gear
- Power tools
For instance, if the site doesn’t have proper safety precautions, falling objects can be deadly. The public is in danger if the crane operators become complacent. It can result in the collapse of power lines and innocent bystanders can suffer injuries or die.
