Fayetteville Slip and Fall Attorneys
Construction sites can be particularly dangerous places, especially if a site manager does a poor job making sure the area is kept well-organized and compliant with basic safety standards. It is not enough to enforce eye protection rules or double-check the working order of machines. If a site is disorganized, messy, and covered in slick substances, either as a natural result of a particular kind of project or from leaking oils and lubricants, the possibility for an employee to slip and sustain a serious injury remains.

Injuries Related to Falling
During the building process, construction crews encounter a large number of possibly slick substances that need to be applied in order to complete a certain project. As a result, a mismanaged work site can be as much of a hazard as any major tool or piece of machinery. If left unchecked, slip and fall incidents can lead to the following injuries:
- wrist injuries
- bone fractures
- bruises and lacerations
- brain damage
As these injuries can be serious impediments to an individual’s ability to perform the basic tasks associated with his or her occupation, whether due to lengthy recovery times or possible permanent disability, it is critically important that they understand their legal rights regarding workers’ compensation.
