With a number of significant groundbreakings during the last year, there is a considerable amount of construction going on in DeLand. While a positive development, this increase in construction may also lead to a parallel increase in accidents for workers.
Because of the hazardous environment and materials, many severe injuries and fatalities occur at construction sites. While some are unpredictable, negligence on anyone's part can create unsafe conditions and make injuries all too common. Slips, falls, cramped working conditions, long-term exposure to dangerous materials, falling equipment, and being struck by a vehicle can leave you unable to work.
If you have been injured at a construction site and you suspect that your employer, an equipment manufacturer, or the owner of the site contributed to the dangerous conditions, you can hold them financially responsible with a personal injury lawsuit. The personal injury attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau can sit down with you to talk about your case and help you determine the best course of action.
