Construction Accidents

Work injuries—especially those that take place at construction sites—frequently occur because of hazardous conditions, dangerous machinery, faulty equipment, unsafe surroundings, or the unsafe conduct of people—either due to negligence or ignorance.

If you have been injured in a construction accident or during any other kind of work-related accident anywhere in Georgia, you should contact the Atlanta, Georgia personal injury law firm of Finch McCranie LLP right away.

Organized attempts to prevent work-related accidents started in the 1800’s when first Great Britain and then the United States adopted factory inspection laws. Accident insurance companies and fire insurance firms started educating the public and enforcing safety rules and regulations, while factory inspectors and casualty insurance inspectors began campaigning against hazardous work conditions and unsafe conduct. In the 1900’s, a new area of engineering that is committed to discovering and eliminating work hazards was created.

Workers’ Compensation

Germany passed its workers’ compensation laws in 1884. Great Britain followed suit in 1897, as did the U.S. in 1908. With the financial responsibility of taking care of injured workers in the hands of employers, the latter were more motivated to make sure that working conditions were safe, all machinery and tools were in proper, working condition, and employees were properly chosen and trained.

The National Safety Council was founded in 1913 in the United States. This organization is committed to accident prevention activities and programs that educate the public about accidents and safety. The NSC regularly compiles statistics, publishes educational information, and works with clubs, schools, industrial groups, municipal agencies, and state agencies to promote safety.
