OSHA Investigates Construction Site Accident – Too Little Too Late?

- Construction Site Accidents
As a Dallas construction site accident attorney, news of a construction accident is always upsetting. I know from experience that too many construction accidents are caused by dangerous working conditions.
A recent Travis County construction accident is being investigated by OSHA. The accident occurred on the future site of the newest Formula-One racetrack. During the accident, a worker was trapped under a piece of heavy machinery. The worker was seriously injured, and only time will tell if he is able to recover from the multiple injuries he sustained.
Employers Should do the Right Thing, before an Accident Happens
When OSHA is called out to investigate a workplace accident, they often find that the construction site was not being run in a safe manner. Contractors, subcontractors, and site foremen are often concerned with getting a job done as quickly as possible; not protecting their employees.
This is wrong. It is wrong for you to be injured because of undue pressure to finish the job as quickly as possible. It is wrong that anyone should put profits above your safety.
If you have been hurt during an accident on a construction site in Dallas or anywhere in Texas, you are likely worried about your future and the future of your family. Will you have enough money to pay for medical bills? What about the money you lose as you recover from your injuries? How will you and your family survive without a steady paycheck?
