It’s been estimated that as many as 25,000 slip, trip, and fall accidents happen daily in the US. Even though there are plenty of safety standards, codes, laws, and guidelines for both taking care of construction areas and current properties, people too often need the help of a slip and fall accident lawyer to gain compensation.
These accidents don’t “just happen”; they happen as a result of negligence and ignoring the safety standards that are required by law. Businesses, workers, and property managers know that they need to adhere to OSHA standards and requirements for better accident prevention, including around ladders, doorways, and uneven surfaces.
If you or a family member has been hurt, or even died, as a result of missing or poor signage, bad maintenance, or insufficient construction safety, it’s time to consider an expert; you need a slip and fall injury lawyer.
