Acknowledging the dangers of construction work

It is not uncommon for someone to be intimidated by the power of equipment and workers on a construction site. Construction workers play an infinitely important role in the expansion, growth, sustainability and strength of the United States. Just look around your neighborhood, and you can see all that construction workers have done for us. Every building, road, wire and pipes below ground can be attributed to the hard work and dedication of the working class. But it is not always easy work.

Here at the law offices of Stephen P. New, we understand the inherent risks workers throughout the West Virginia take every day to put food on the table, support their families and strive to achieve each's own "American Dream." Unfortunately, some jobs are more dangerous than other, and if an employer does not take all necessary precautions to assure a safe working environment, things could get dangerous for workers. There may also be times when an employer tries to cover up their negligence to avoid charges or penalties. This puts the worker at an extreme disadvantage.

Unfortunately, there is no completely safe-proof way to protect the American worker. But there are certainly many ways that steps can be taken to minimize the chance of an accident that could lead to catastrophic or even deadly results.

If you or someone you know has suffered a work injury, it is important to make certain that your rights were not violated and make certain you receive the benefits you deserve. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has strict guidelines in place to assure that workers are protected from unsafe working environments. Companies are required by law to adhere to the OSHA guidelines to make certain that their workers are protected.
