Trench Accidents

Trenches can often be found on construction sites as part of the process for installing electrical conduits, sewers, footings, or for gaining access to existing structures under the ground. Trenches can collapse, however, for any number of reasons, resulting in serious injury and death for construction workers who are sometimes buried beneath tons of earth and debris.

Trench Workers Deserve Capable Representation

A trench can collapse if any of the reinforcement fails or is defective, or if backfill material is too close to the excavation site.

Construction workers face various hazards from working in trenches including:

Contractors, property owners, and other parties are obligated to provide a safe worksite for their employees to protect against such harm coming to construction workers. Trenches must be dug and supported in certain ways, and workers must be able to get out of them easily. When those in charge fail to adequately protect employees, our West Virginia work injury lawyers can hold them accountable.
