Do you have an Unsafe Workplace?

- Work Injuries
If you work in road construction, you know that it’s a job that comes with risks. However, as a Dallas construction injury lawyer, I know that there are many things that the contractor you work for and your supervisor or foreman should be doing to protect you from undue risks on the job site.
Before Your Dallas Construction Accident, Did You Feel Unsafe at Work?
If so, there is a good chance that your feelings were valid. Perhaps your boss did not insist on proper safety procedures, or asked you to do jobs that you knew were unsafe. In a rush to get a job done, too many contractors and job site foremen ask workers to do things that they know are unsafe. Under pressure to get the job done or be fired, you may have performed tasks in an unsafe way, or gone ahead working when you knew that the correct safety measures were not put in place.
By making you choose between your safety and your job, they have put money above your safety, your life. Now you are hurt and might never return to the job that you and your family rely on.
You Do Not Have to Suffer in Silence
Too many times, we talk to people who have been hurt at work but are scared to report the accident. They have been made to feel that if they complain, if they file for worker’s compensation or file a personal injury lawsuit, they will lose their job. This is not only unfair, it is often illegal.
You do have rights. Do not let your employer take away your rights as an injured worker. Call 972-774-9800 to speak with a Dallas construction accident lawyer who is ready to defend your rights and get you the compensation you deserve. Please call today.
