Construction Site Burns
There are a number of steps an employer can take in order to reduce the likelihood that a burn injury will occur, and there are a number of steps and employer can take in order to treat a burn once it occurs. Preparedness is key, which is why safe construction sites have on hand sterile burn dressing and fire blankets in case of a burn injury. In addition, employers should be sure to follow all safety requirements from both state government and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA.
Unfortunately, burns and many other construction site injuries are a direct result of someone else's negligence. Negligence means any conduct that creates an unreasonable risk of harm to others, and it is actionable when that risk creates a legally cognizable injury. The frequency with which employers endanger their employees is deplorable, and the law accordingly recognizes that employees deserve to be compensated in certain circumstances.
What you should do if you have been injured:
If you or someone you know has suffered from a construction-related burn, seek medical care immediately. The next step is to contact a personal injury attorney. A lawyer will be able to help you determine whether or not you are entitled to compensation. Depending on the facts of your case, you could be compensated for medical costs, injuries, damages and more.
