Serving Salt Lake City and the entire Wasatch Front

Construction sites are commonplace for on-the-job injuries. In fact, according to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, three of the ten most common safety violations occurred on construction sites. Individuals who have been injured at their place of work can have many obstacles to go through. Part of fully recovering from an accident means seeking legal representation to help recover financially from medical bills, time lost from work, pain and suffering, and how the injuries will affect your future ability to work.

Attorney Roberto Hernandez and his legal team have years of experience serving English and Spanish speaking communities with their injury representation needs. Their adventure leads them to understand laws and regulations that may be violated and thus negligent by part of a third party. We know how to find these violations and hold any negligent construction site owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and faulty equipment manufacturers.

Common construction site injuries in Utah

  • Head injuries:  People who build things for a living are more prone to injuries than other carriers. Head injuries can happen when massive objects such as tools or building materials fall from above on workers down below. They can also occur if someone were to fall into a dangerous area that was not properly marked or quarantined.
  • Burns and scars:  Construction sites use many hot and combustible materials for various reasons. One of the most common injuries happens when a worker has been burned while performing their job duties. Examples include fires, explosions, exposed wires, chemicals, or other dangerous materials that can burn when in contact with skin.
  • Loss of fingers or limbs:  Workers can lose their limbs from various accidents that can happen. Perhaps an arm has been crushed because a heavy object or wall has fallen. In other cases, a finger has accidentally been cut off or must be amputated because it has been severely mangled.
