Helping injured construction workers in Maine
Construction workers are the heart and soul of America’s economy, and deserve our utmost respect. Whether it’s building a bridge, a new hospital, or a family’s first home, construction workers get the job done for the people of Maine.
Sadly, this dependability often comes with a human toll. Despite advances in safety protocols and equipment, the serious injuries and fatality rates for construction workers are much higher than most industries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that roughly 1 in 10 construction site workers are injured each year.
While some of these injuries are indeed accidents that could not have been foreseen or prevented, thousands are preventable, and often happen because of someone else’s negligence. For example, sometimes construction workers don’t have enough training to do their jobs safely; critical equipment is not maintained properly; or safety codes are ignored.
When construction workers are injured through no fault of their own, the lawyers at Berman & Simmons are trusted allies. No other firm in Maine can match the experience, knowledge, and resources we bring to the table to successfully resolve your case.
