The expert attorneys at Wormington & Bollinger protect the rights of construction accident victims.

Construction accidents are oftentimes serious and result in life-changing injuries for those involved. Due to the fact many construction jobs require individuals to operate and work amongst heavy machinery, the risk of injury and death is much higher than many other professions. Unfortunately, construction site accidents occur on a regular basis throughout McKinney, Plano, and the surrounding areas. While there are numerous safety laws and regulations in place designed to keep workers and passersby safe, accidents still happen. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nearly 5,000 construction workers are killed every single year in the United States. On average there are more than 93 deaths a week, or 13 deaths every single day. This may come as a shock to some, but others are all too familiar with the devastation caused by construction site accidents.

As those who work in the construction industry know, it is imperative all the necessary steps are taken to stay safe on a daily basis. This includes wearing the right safety equipment, following all safety guidelines set in place, and never violating site safety protocols. However, you can still end up in the middle of a serious construction site accident, even if you have done everything you can to keep yourself and those around you safe. It is no secret that the construction industry is dangerous by nature, whether because of the equipment being used, the duties performed, or the job site itself. At Wormington & Bollinger, we understand the life-changing repercussions of a construction site accident and are here to help you. If you have been injured on the job, please give us a call today so we can help you seek both justice and compensation for your injuries and damages.
