Construction Accidents

Construction accidents can occur from inadequate worker protection, failure to follow safety procedures, or a lack of training and supervision, as well as product and equipment failures.

Rimkus has investigated hundreds of construction site accidents. Our team offers a unique understanding of forensic sciences and is highly skilled at investigation techniques and evidence recovery procedures.

Our consulting experts combine their forensic expertise with years of knowledge and industry experience in design, construction, field operations, OSHA standards, and regulatory compliance for analyzing the facts and determining the cause of complex injury accidents.

Rimkus performs site inspections to document the scene and obtain vital information. Interviews and witness statements are conducted with management, employees, and safety personnel. 

We also review safety plans, training materials, and use of personal protection equipment, as well as examine worksite directives, incident reports, and OSHA regulations.
