Injuries Resulting from Avoidable Hazards
Industrial Accident Lawyer Oklahoma City
Working on construction or industrial sites carries special dangers which are often seen as just "part of the job." However, work sites often have obvious and avoidable hazards that unnecessarily endanger the lives and health of workers. The Tawwater Law Firm has spent more than 36 years fighting hard on behalf of people who have suffered catastrophic injury and families whose loved ones have suffered wrongful death in construction accidents and industrial accidents.
Anyone who has suffered a catastrophic injury in a construction or industrial accident should immediately report the incident to his or her employer. The employer must then provide workers' compensation forms -- but even if you receive the proper forms, there is no guarantee that you will receive all the money you need to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other expenses arising from the accident.
Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to deal with many types of construction and industrial accident cases, including cases involving:
- Lifting injuries
- Slips and falls
- Car accidents
- Electric shock
- Construction and industrial equipment, and more.
Construction accidents happen in an instant and occur due to a variety of factors. Cranes collapse, heavy equipment operators fail to watch out for workers on the ground, chemicals explode and many other dangerous events occur every day at construction sites that result in injury and death. The Tawwater Law Firm has handled many of these cases and is familiar with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration "OSHA" Regulations and know how to utilize them to benefit our clients. OSHA and Oklahoma law provide numerous regulations that govern the safety of job sites and we are experienced in determining whether or not they were followed and if the failure to follow the regulations resulted in injury or death.
The dangers of construction sites can often be complex and determining who was at fault even more complex. We have the experience and resources to examine your case and identify all of the potential defendants and hold them accountable for their conduct. This includes the property owner, general contractor, supervising contractor and all sub-contractors.
