Boston Law Firm Aids Construction Workers Harmed by OSHA Violations

Massachusetts attorneys seeking justice when employers break the rules

Construction accidents can’t be eliminated completely, but many job site injuries would be prevented if contractors and other employers followed the relevant federal regulations. If you’ve been hurt while working in construction, Feinberg & Alban PC will analyze your claim in light of the pertinent Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules. Since 1970, this federal agency has helped reduce work-related deaths and injuries by more than 65 percent. OSHA rules can be crucial when evaluating whether your injury resulted from gross negligence or a willful violation of the standard of care. Our attorneys make sure that full compensation is sought when OSHA rules have been violated.

Assisting injured parties with claims related to common OSHA breaches

Feinberg & Alban helped a construction worker client obtain a $500,000 settlement in a case where his hand was severely injured by a collapsing wall. While another wall had undergone the evaluation required by federal and Massachusetts rules, the wall that crumbled had not. Though you might not realize it, your construction injury could be connected to an OSHA violation involving one of the following:

  • Falls and scaffolding — Falls account for more construction deaths than any other type of incident. Inadequate fall protection is also the most common OSHA citation. Preventive measures must be taken at any height of at least six feet, and scaffold planking and support must meet size and load-bearing standards.
  • Chemical hazards — When hazardous chemicals are being used, labels must be specific, and suitable protection must be provided to protect those working directly with the chemicals and others who might be exposed to them later.
  • Respiratory protection — Construction workers have suffered debilitating illness and death due to airborne substances such as asbestos. If oxygen is insufficient or harmful elements are in the air, respirators must be provided.
  • Machine malfunction — When equipment fails, employees can be severely injured before they even have time to react. In such a case, an action might exist against the employer and the product’s manufacturer.

For any type of construction accident on the job, Feinberg & Alban attorneys will help you hold employers to OSHA standards even if the government has not taken action yet.
