No matter what time of year it is, Ohio residents can see various types of structures and roads being constructed. Construction workers play a vital role in society; building roads, bridges, homes and offices. Unfortunately, however, these employees face many risks and dangers on the job. Although certain measures are taken, such as training and providing safety gear, these steps do not always prevent serious, and even fatal, construction accidents from occurring.
Despite the potential dangers associated with this career, construction workers are still needed, and individuals continue to fill these necessary positions. Even when safety standards are put in place, this does not protect workers from negligence in the workplace from harming them. At Brian, Zwick, Marchisio, Stone & Associates, our experienced law firm understands the devastation that can follow a construction accident; therefore, we are prepared to help workers understand their rights and obtain the benefits they deserve.
While falling from heights is a major risk faced by construction workers, this is not the only danger these employees have to watch out for. A construction worker could suffer a serious injury in a slip-and-fall accident or being struck by a falling object. Additionally, a construction worker could be harmed by an occupational disease, such as asbestosis or mesothelioma.
