Workers in the construction industry face dangerous working conditions on a daily basis. No matter how many precautions are in place, construction site accidents happen and these workers are entitled to compensation for their injuries.
Georgia construction site injury cases can involve accidents caused by a wide variety of issues such as defective or collapsing scaffolding, falls from roofs or ladders, electrocution and defective machinery and hardware like chainsaws, conveyor belts, tractors and cranes.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that more than 1,000 construction workers will be killed in any given year, and many others will be seriously injured in accidents that could have been avoided. The Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act provides benefits to workers who are injured on the job but workers’ compensation doesn’t always cover all of the costs or repay a victim for things that can’t be quantified. Mike Conner and the Conner Law Group, located in Savannah and Jesup, have handled hundreds of construction cases, and you can depend on the Conner Law Group and their experience as a construction accident attorney to interpret and apply the complex laws that govern construction law to best serve you after your accident.
