Des Moines Wrongful Death Attorneys
Construction sites hold more severe occupational dangers than most other work environments. The heavy machinery and tools that are required to complete construction jobs that would otherwise be impossible creates a danger that is uncommon to most other industries. A single mistake or malfunction on-site can put laborers in potentially life-threatening situations. These accidents can leave families without a mother or father, spouses without a husband or wife, and parents without a daughter or son.
If you have lost a loved one in a construction accident, contact the Des Moines work-related wrongful death lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., today at 877-327-2600 to learn more about your legal rights.
The dangers involved in construction are a well-known part of the job, but can be avoided if the proper precautions are taken. Site managers and fellow workers have a responsibility to keep site areas organized, safe for others to work in and around, and properly marked off if work is in progress. Failure to provide these warnings or maintain proper safety protocol can produce disastrous results. The following are potentially fatal mishaps on a construction site:
- Open electrical wiring
- Scaffolding collapse
- Crane collapse
- Ladder collapse
- Mishandled power tools
- Falls from elevation
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
Maintenance is a serious concern at any job site, but it is essential when working in construction. As workers constantly use complex machines capable of producing extreme force, even a small malfunction or mistake can have tragic consequences.
The loss of a loved one can be a devastating prospect to face for any family, let alone the substantial financial concerns that follow the grief.
