Orlando Personal Injury Law Firm on Construction Work Dangers

Orlando Personal Injury Law Firm

Martinez Manglardi PA wants to remind workers to be safe and avoid workplace injury. In Florida, on-the-job or work-related accidents kill nearly 300 people a year. A recent report from FairWarning says that falling from scaffolds, roofs or any elevated platform is the biggest killer. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, falling kills nearly 900 workers every year nationwide. Construction sites are the most dangerous, with falls accounting for almost 40 percent of workplace fatalities.

Last year,  a scaffold collapse killed two workers at a construction site near Walt Disney World. And last month, a worker at an Epcot construction site died in a fall.

In another example, a U.S. Department of Labor investigation found that a roofing company in Jacksonville has failed to protect workers from fall risks. A division of the Labor Department, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), has proposed fining Florida Roofing Experts more than $132,000.

 

Orlando Personal Injury Law Firm Helps Workers Injured in Accidents

Any Orlando personal injury law firm that handles car accident injuries can tell you that I-4 is one of the most dangerous roads in America. In addition to keeping Orlando car accident lawyers busy, the I-4 project also has its share of construction worker accidents.

“Since construction began on the $2-billion-plus overhaul of Central Florida’s busiest road in 2015, four workers have died and more than 160 injuries have been reported to federal authorities, records show,” reports the Orlando Sentinel. “About 25 of those injuries have been serious enough for workers to miss time on the job.”
