Construction site injury is unfortunately all too common in North and South Carolina. Failure of contractors to enforce worker protection standards on job sites often results in serious injuries. Workers can be robbed of their health, employability, or life itself.
OSHA regulations and labor law set requirements for safety equipment, machinery maintenance, fall safety precautions, construction of scaffolding, placement of ladders, and a variety of other construction safety issues.
Job site injuries occur because of falls from heights, old or re-used safety harnesses, falling objects, equipment malfunction, ladder falls, or sometimes spectacular failures to observe basic safety precautions. Construction workers and visitors injured as a result deserve to be compensated for medical expenses, rehabilitation, long-term care, and lost wages.
