The Michigan construction site accident lawyers at our firm investigate construction accident injuries on behalf of Michigan construction site workers. Every year, thousands of construction site accidents cause serious injuries or kill workers. These accident frequently cause serious and catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and death. Cases involving death often give rise to a Michigan Wrongful Death claim.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) laws require construction companies to inspect each construction site with safety engineers and provide safety programs, but unfortunately injuries still occur due to negligent conduct and the inadequacy of the safety provisions. The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) has specific safety guidelines and requirements for Michigan construction sites.Whenever a construction site accident occurs, the owners, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions.
The law requires the general contractor and all subcontractors to provide a reasonably safe construction site, to warn of hazards inherent in the site and work, to hire careful employees, to coordinate job safety and to supervise compliance with safety specifications. It is often possible to find manufacturers and other third parties liable for your construction site injury. Since most construction projects involve many subcontractors, subcontractors can also be responsible for causing your injuries as well.
If you have been injured in a construction site accident due to defective safety equipment or inadequate safety procedures, you should contact our Michigan construction accident lawyers to discuss your legal rights. There are steps that must be taken in order to ensure that critical evidence is secured and an investigation is completed.
