Construction Site Injuries Caused by Unprotected Holes
Construction sites are fast-moving workplaces that can present many different types of possible hazards. Among the most serious of these are unprotected holes or gaps in the flooring. It is the responsibility of the contractor to follow up on all work that is being done on the site and to ensure that any hazards are clearly marked or promptly corrected.
Any failure in responsibility on the part of the contractor can put everyone on the work site at risk of serious injury. If you or a loved one has been injured due to an unprotected hole or a gap in the flooring on a construction site, you may have a claim for damages. Even if your injury is covered under workers’ compensation, you may still have grounds for an additional personal injury claim.
These can be extremely complex cases, and it is important that you have your case reviewed by an experienced Joliet construction site injury attorney.
