Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2014 -- Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky, a team of Philadelphia personal injury attorneys, is pleased to announce they are now providing legal representation for victims of workplace accidents this fall. Cases involving employees suffering injuries at the workplace, employers understand that an unsafe environment exists, yet they avoid correcting the hazard or inform their employees of the potential risks. In the previous cases the attorneys represented included such common workplace hazards that include gas explosions, chemicals, heat & burn risks and malfunctioning equipment.
According to a construction accident attorney of Philadelphia, the firm’s main priority is to ensure construction worksites are free of hazardous conditions. They hold the owners of unsafe work sites responsible for the abundance of serious injuries and deaths resulting from negligence.
When representing victims of worksite accidents, Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky provide extensive analysis from highly-qualified medical & safety experts. The law firm also works with independent engineering specialists who investigate the worksite owner’s prior knowledge of the hazardous condition, along with the failure to warn employees or correct it. The engineering specialists also investigate whether or not worksite owners were in compliance with OSHA regulations and procedures.
In 2011, the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that 666 workers died as a result of slips, falls or trips on their worksite. 219 workers died as a result of an object or piece of equipment falling on them. Even though the most-recent statistics show that fatal construction and related worksite accidents have declined in the past five years, the industry still shows the second-highest fatalities in the workplace.
Individuals, who were injured in the workplace, or someone suffering from a spouse being injured in the workplace, deserve financial compensation. Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky personal injury attorneys are available for a free case evaluation this fall.
