Loyal Legal Service For Construction Accident Cases
Construction injuries aren’t a matter of “if” but “when.” A recent report by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) found that of all the worker fatalities in private industry in a calendar year, one in five worker deaths came from the construction industry due to accidents. Workers’ lives could change forever after falls, being struck by an object, being caught in equipment or being crushed by a collapsing structure.
