According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, more than 4,000 workers in the United States were killed on the job in 2011 alone.

Orlando accident attorney Todd Miner helps a large number of on the job accident victims file claims against employers and insurance companies.

Todd Miner specializes in construction accidents. He advises each victim to:

  • File a case as soon as possible
  • Avoid talking to an insurance representative from work
  • Not sign any documents before speaking with a lawyer.

If you have suffered an accident at work, it’s important that you contact a lawyer immediately following the accident.

Construction Accidents Occur because Safety Rules Aren’t Followed

Construction accidents are one of the most frequent types of accidents for workers across the United States and sometimes safety rules are not followed, making the environment even more unsafe. Safety rules can sometimes be ignored by management if projects are behind schedule, or in an effort to save money. As a result, thousands of construction workers are killed or injured each year.

Leading Hazards Faced by Construction Workers

The construction industry led all other industries in workplace accidents and fatalities last year. The leading hazards faced by construction workers are associated with heavy machinery, handling dangerous materials manually, cave-ins, underground utilities, and various electrical hazards. A lot of accidents occurred while workers were trying to redirect traffic to a new route. It is sad to think that most of the accidents which occur in the construction industry are preventable.
