Dedicated Legal Champions Serving The Borderland And Beyond

Protecting Your Rights After A Trench Collapse

At Mendez Isaac Joudi, PLLC, our lawyers are dedicated to advocating for those affected by trench collapses in El Paso, Texas, and beyond. Construction sites, especially those with large projects and new buildings, often require trenches and excavations for various purposes, such as laying pipes and cables.

However, the failure to construct these trenches properly can lead to injuries and, tragically, unnecessary fatalities. Trench collapses, in particular, pose a significant risk, as soil can weigh up to 3,000 lbs. per cubic yard. Victims may suffer crushing injuries or even suffocation due to equipment failures or improper construction.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has long recognized the importance of preventing trench collapse accidents. It has made trench safety one of its leading initiatives for decades. Yet, despite these efforts, trench collapses continue to be a leading cause of death at construction sites.
