If you work in the construction industry here in New England, you may have worked on job sites that wound up shut down due to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) complaints.
Some OSHA complaints are generated by on-the-job mishaps where workers have already been injured. But others arise over conditions that are ripe for causing injuries but that have yet to do so. When it is the former, you have the right to seek financial compensation for the injuries that you suffered due to a company’s failure to protect their workers from workplace hazards.
Your accident and injury may also become the catalyst of an OSHA complaint. It can be filed by you, a co-worker or someone else on your behalf.
We encourage all injured workers in and around Boston to fully comply with OSHA investigations on dangerous job sites. If you are one of the injured workers, we can help you file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.
If your claim initially gets denied, we can also steer you through the appeals process to ensure that you have the best chance possible to secure financial, medical and other benefits arising from the safety lapse.
Workers’ compensation cases can be relatively complex on construction sites because liability can be shared by several subcontractors and other entities involved with the build. They may not be as open and shut as some cases in other industries where it is clearer who holds liability for the workers’ injuries and other damages.
