Jeffrey Hammond has dedicated a significant amount of his practice to litigating construction accident cases. His interest in these cases goes beyond representing plaintiffs that have been injured on the construction site as he is also an OSHA authorized construction safety trainer. Hammond is authorized to teach both the 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety courses that educate others on the recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention of safety and health hazards on construction sites.
The Indiana Lawyer newspaper recently spoke with Hammond regarding Hunt Construction Group, Inc. v. Garrett, 938 N.E.2d 794 (Ind. App.2011). When speaking about complex contract agreements between parties, Hammond explained “Companies or contractors who put profits over safety and seek ways to avoid accountability for their worksite safety obligations are probably not going to get the job.”
