Michigan construction accident lawyers represent workers and their families in lawsuits arising out of injuries on the job or on site. Many construction site injuries occur due to unsafe worksites, lack of safety equipment, and the negligence of the general contractor or other sub-contractorts. Due to the dificult and often dangerous nature of the occupation, these accident frequently cause serious and catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and death.
Thousands of construction workers are injured or killed in construction site accidents each year. Companies must inspect each site with safety engineers and provide safety programs, but unfortunately incidents still occur due to the inadequacy of these provisions. The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) has specific safety guidelines and requirements for Michigan construction sites.
