Milwaukee Construction Accident Lawyers
A Milwaukee construction accident lawyer represents clients who are hurt on construction sites. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported approximately 1,000 annual fatalities on United States construction sites during 2007 and 2008. Many more people were seriously injured in construction accidents during these years.
While the construction industry is inherently dangerous, there are certain precautions that construction industry employers must take to keep their employees safe. Many of those precautions are required by the federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and by the Wisconsin Safe Place Law. For example, many accidents happen when workers are using ladders, scaffolding, towers or dockboards and employers have an obligation to make sure that these, and other, types of equipment meet all applicable safety regulations and that all appropriate safety precautions are provided for employees. Vehicular accidents, such as tractor trailer accidents, are also common on construction sites and may have occurred because of the negligence of the premises owner, operator or the construction employer. A Wisconsin tractor trailer accident attorney can help victims investigate, negotiate and litigate their claims and recover appropriate damages.
How a Wisconsin Construction Accident Lawyer Can Help You
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a construction accident then it is important to contact an experienced Milwaukee construction accident attorney for advice. Your attorney will provide you with a free, no obligation consultation to discuss the circumstances of your accident, the extent of your injuries and your legal options. If you and your Wisconsin construction injury lawyer decide to proceed then your attorney will conduct an investigation into the reasons for your accident.
The Wisconsin Safe Place Law holds developers and owners of construction property and employers of construction workers to a high standard. Any, or all, of these parties may be defendants in a construction accident lawsuit. Generally, you have three years to file a lawsuit against these parties if you have been hurt on a construction site.
