A construction accident is any accident that occurs on a building site. Construction sites are inherently dangerous because they require employees to work from high positions and with hazardous materials. Since there is already an assumed risk, it is the responsibility of the construction company or property owner to take necessary precautions to prevent a construction accident. Boston attorney Frederic Halström represents clients who have been involved in construction accidents.
Common construction accidents include: exposure to hazardous materials, falls from high places, injuries involving construction tools or leftover debris, and injuries sustained from collapsing scaffolding.
