Beaver County Construction Accident Attorney

Construction sites can be found all over Beaver County and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. These sites are required to follow the labor laws of not only the state but also the federal laws in place from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). When construction accidents happen they tend to be tragic, either severely injuring or killing workers. Construction accidents can be avoided if all those working on the site follow safety regulations and report hazards. When they are not prevented is when workers can find themselves in precarious situations. An experienced Beaver County construction accident attorney from the team of Shenderovich, Shenderovich and Fishman can answer all of your questions if you are injured in such an accident.

Common Construction Accidents

The most common construction accidents our attorneys have experience with include the following:

  • Slip and falls
  • Falls from heights
  • Electrocution
  • Caught in between objects, vehicles, or machinery
  • Falling objects or debris
  • Explosions and fires
  • Accidents involving machinery
  • Overexertion
  • Trench collapses
  • Being hit by a vehicle

All of these accidents can be avoided if all employees of the construction site follow the Pennsylvania laws on safety and all OSHA regulations. But, there are times when honest mistakes occur that lead to serious accidents. There are also times where people decide to cut corners and ignore safety regulations in an effort to complete a project on time or as quickly as possible. This is when the most tragic of accidents happen.

Construction Site Safety Tips

If you work on a construction site you need to be as safe as possible. The first step in doing so is following all procedures and safety rules set forth by the construction company running the site.
