JurisdictionPaul Dansker & Aspromonte attorneys are trained in areas of law to cater for the welfare of construction workers and other injured construction site stake holders. They serve a wide range of construction site accident prone workers like electricians, roofers, plumbers and cart operators, among others.
They operate on the premise that worker safety at the construction site lies squarely with the owners of the buildings and their contractors. The responsibility for the safety measures at the construction sites also lies with the site engineers and other registered construction site professionals like architects and designers. In fact, recent studies show that construction accidents mainly occur because of negligence and carelessness on the part of these professionals. It is therefore, the duty of the construction accident attorney to make these professionals accountable.
WorkingWell, most construction accident attorneys are either employed at law firms or in private practice, based on their academic qualifications. However, most of them are employed by law firms whose target market is the construction and real estate industry. When accidents occur at construction sites, they are among the first people to be dispatched to the said construction sites. Their role is to collect relevant evidence, exhibits, testimonies, witness statements together with the police and other relevant reports from the site of the accident, adequate enough to help them sustain trial. Their biggest responsibility however lies in how much they can link contractor or employer negligence and carelessness to the accidents.
They also provide initial legal advice to the injured in terms of making legal representation, so that they are not swindled or harassed. On most occasions, they normally file immediate law suits against the parties whose failures led to the accidents, as soon as possible to avoid distortion and interference.
Construction work is one of the most dangerous occupations, and workers face daily risks working in high places, around heavy construction equipment, toxic chemicals, and other hazards. Because of the inherent risks of construction work, construction site owners, general contractors and other parties must be diligent in providing adequate safety precautions. Failure to do so can result in serious injury and wrongful death.
