Accidents do happen, but when serious injury or the loss of life is involved, liability becomes an issue. The company responsible for the job site, or any workers involved in a given accident could be liable for damages depending on the circumstances
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
New York City based Construction Accident lawyers Munawar & Andrews-Santillo today released a statement stressing the importance of safety in the workplace. Their announcement comes in the wake of a serious construction accident in New Hampshire that left a worker with a significant fracture to his leg.
According to a report from the Foster’s Daily Democrat (Worker falls from scaffold, breaks leg at construction site, July 18, 2013), the accident occurred when a 50-year-old construction worker fell from a scaffolding and suffered a severe leg fracture. The report estimated the fall at around a 6 foot drop.
According to the report, the accident marks the second time this year that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been summoned to the job site to investigate a workplace accident.
Adnan Munawar, an attorney specializing in Construction Accidents at New York firm Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, weighed in on the importance of safety in the workplace, especially in regard to construction sites.
“Construction sites are full of opportunities for workers to hurt themselves or others, that is why safety should be the number one concern at any job site,” said Munawar. “Accidents do happen, but when serious injury or the loss of life is involved, liability becomes an issue. The company responsible for the job site, or any workers involved in a given accident could be liable for damages depending on the circumstances of the accident.”
Anyone involved in an accident at a job site should seek the advice of an attorney who is qualified to advise them of their rights. The attorneys at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo are specialists in such cases.
