Trench Collapse Accident

Every year there is dozens of trench injury deaths and hundreds of injuries associated with trench collapse. According to OSHA regulation, before sending a worker in to a trench over 5 feet deep, an employer is required to first install sufficient shoring to prevent collapse. It is then necessary for them to perform a proper inspection of the shoring to see if it meets all safety standards. It is an unfortunate truth of deadlines and cost cutting that these steps often get over looked.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a trench collapse, and believe that it was caused by your employer’s negligence, then it is important to contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights. You may be entitled to compensation to cover costs associated with medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of wage, and even wrongful death. In workers compensation cases, timing is key; often times there are deadlines in order to file litigation.
