Southern California Construction Accidents Lawyers
Construction site accidents occur every day and account for thousands of workplace injuries and deaths nationwide. In an area like Riverside, with constant construction on the roadways and new buildings going up all the time, accidents occur far too often.
While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires construction site employers to provide a safe working environment for their employees, serious injury and fatal accidents still occur on a regular basis. In fact, there are over 4600 workers killed a year in the US in work-related accidents, that’s 12 per day!
These accidents may be due to failure on the employer’s part to implement workplace safety programs or employer negligence in providing safe working conditions for their employees. Our construction accident attorneys have seen this in Riverside time and time again.
