How does employer negligence lead to construction accidents?
Employer negligence is a leading cause of construction accidents and injuries. Failure to maintain construction vehicles and power tools, failure to properly train and educate employees concerning their job function and dangers, and failure to follow safety protocols and procedures can all contribute to dangerous worker accidents and injuries. In these cases, accidents would usually be preventable if not for the carelessness of employers. Companies should be held legally and financially responsible for their irreparable and reckless actions. Far too often in accident cases, the negligent employer gets away with their actions and victims suffer. No victim should have to endure the physical, emotional, and financial burdens of these injuries and employers should not be able to continue with their unsafe practices.
