Construction Accident Takes Boy’s Life in Northern California

By Kelly Balamuth on September 17, 2010

With building materials strewn about and structures far from stable, construction sites are never completely safe. Because of this, construction companies and foremen have a significant responsibility to ensure that all individuals visiting a construction site, both employees and non-employees, are properly protected from the many dangers that present themselves. Unfortunately, according to San Jose’s Mercury News, an 8-year-old boy was killed by a passing forklift while visiting his father’s welding firm in Northern California.

Regardless of the type of workplace, business owners and facilities managers need to take all necessary precautions in order to minimize the risk of injury to employees and workplace visitors. If a business owner negligently fails to fix a potential hazard or to maintain workplace equipment in a safe manner, then a person injured by that negligence may be able to seek compensatory damages from the negligent party to help cover the costs associated with the injury, such as medical bills and lost wages for time away from work. In all Northern California construction accident and premises liability cases, the services of a skilled personal injury attorney should be enlisted to ensure that the injury victim’s rights are protected.
