Construction Accident Attorneys
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has reported that one out of every ten construction workers are injured each year. They also report that fall hazards are actually the leading cause of injury for construction workers. Although many of these injuries are caused by simple accidents, others could have been prevented if it weren’t for the carelessness or negligence of someone else.
The best course of action for anyone involved in a construction accident would be to acquire the services of an attorney specializing in personal injury cases. For a free case evaluation, please contact Sutliff & Stout online or by phone at (713) 987-7111.
