Injured Near a Demolition Site? Here’s What You MUST Know
Demolition is part of construction work, and this is one of the most dangerous jobs one can perform. Bystanders or pedestrians are also not spared because of the possibility for shrapnel to come flying into their field of view, causing catastrophic injuries. Demolitions must be done in a controlled manner, and the public must be provided with ample notice so they can take preparatory steps in order to protect themselves. Demolitions are a very common means of getting rid of or bringing down dilapidated or abandoned buildings for the purposes of clearing up the space for other buildings. Workers that provide their services in such environments are protected by OSHA government regulations, and should anything happen to them, chances are the event occurred due to contravention or not following said regulations. If you or a loved one got injured at a demolition site, you have every right to file a claim in order to recover money damages, and we’re here to help with that.
