Workers Injured as Metal Beams Fall ‘Like Dominoes’ at Construction Site | Burns & Wilcox

Two workers narrowly avoid serious injuries after being thrown from horizontal metal beams at a construction site on the Boston University campus on May 14.

 

“A major portion of a construction company’s risk is bodily injury to employees or subcontractors that are working out on the site. A worker may try to prove that had it not been for the owner or general contractor’s negligence or unsafe work site, they would not have gotten hurt.” –Nicholas Freeman, Associate Managing Director, Broker, Casualty, Burns & Wilcox Brokerage, Dallas, Texas
