Safety Equipment Failures

Employers, general contractors and other parties in the construction industry are required to make sure that construction sites have proper tools and safety equipment available to workers.

If you have been injured due to a lack of proper tools or safety equipment, or the wrong safety equipment being provided, it is important to understand your rights. You have the right to hold negligent parties accountable, and that can come in the form of a personal injury claim to pay for your doctor bills, lost wages and other damages.
