HLH stands up for construction workers who are injured in a fall to ensure they receive full and fair compensation for their injuries. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently reported falls are the leading cause of fatal construction accidents. Falls on construction sites account for more than one-third of the fatalities in the construction industry.
The data provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also lists “falls” as the leading cause of death and serious injury at construction sites. OSHA recognizes that all work conducted six or more feet above the ground exposes a worker to higher risks for serious injury or death.
Federal law and Kentucky regulations provide specific safety measures which must be in place whenever a worker is working off the ground. In many cases, companies do not meet these requirements or fail to provide adequate safety training and equipment for at risk workers. In other cases, a fall resulting in serious injuries or loss of life may be due to the actions of another company or contractor at the site.
HLH stands up for construction workers who are injured in a fall at work to ensure they receive workers compensation and pursue third party injury claims against companies or outside parties who violated safety requirements or otherwise contributed to your injuries. Construction injuries often result in the permanent conditions which require life altering changes to your home, vehicles and workplace.
