Oklahoma Construction Site Accidents
Despite an exhaustive list of safety precautions, construction sites are fraught with every kind of imaginable danger. Heat, electricity, machinery, and chemicals are hazards that few of us face on a day-to-day basis in most professions, but are a reality on many construction sites. Combine these factors with carelessness and human error, and the resulting accidents take an exacting toll on American workers each year.
The dangers of a construction site are not only dangers for the workers. Unfortunate pedestrians and passers-by are often exposed to the perils once thought to be exclusively a condition of working in the construction industry. Asbestos, noxious fumes, and falling debris may proliferate beyond the established perimeters of a construction site, often without warning or notice. While many precautions on a worksite are designed with workers in mind, few preventive measures take into consideration the safety of others.
Fortunately, there is recourse for people injured by the dangers of construction sites. Whether worker, contractor, or passerby, you have a right to receive compensation if you suffer injuries on a worksite. Unfortunately, Oklahoma limits the amount of time you have to collect restitution owed to you by negligent parties, so talk to one of our lawyers without delay.
