It is well-known that following safety protocol is one of the best ways to protect you and others from injury, especially in high risk environments such as construction sites. Individuals that get injured on construction sites don’t have this happen to them out of the blue – most of the time, someone else not doing what they were meant to have been doing, negligence or carelessness are what causes these injuries. Your supervisor or employer as a duty of care towards you, the worker, to keep you safe at all times as you carry out work duties. This is decreed or demanded by the government via OSHA work regulations as well as personal injury law. One of the individuals that construction site workers look up to the most is the supervisor. These are highly-trained individuals that must be up-to-speed when it comes to applying said regulations as well as making sure that workers have the appropriate training. Supervisor negligence may lead to a personal injury lawsuit which will make it possible for you to file a lawsuit in order to recover money damages, and we’re here to help with that.
