Built To Last?

Depending on your age, you’ve either heard your grandparents or parents say it, or you’ve said it yourself:

“In my day, things were built to last.”

This was no accident.

A commitment to craftsmanship, a willingness to invest in quality materials, and strong labor unions led to buildings that were built to last. The buildings that you admire today for their architecture and character were built to stand the test of time.

Is today’s new construction built to last?

It varies from building to building, but the increase in construction accidents and building code violations leads one to wonder whether today’s new construction will be here to admire generations from now.

More distressingly, these accidents and building code violations place real lives at risk. Injuries have been on the rise as a result of negligence, brought on by builders and developers seeking short term profits at the expense of worker safety and long-term quality.

If you or a family member has been harmed as a result of negligence – on the job or otherwise – you can rely on the experienced personal injury attorneys at Block O’Toole & Murphy to look out for you.

Our commitment to our clients is – you guessed it – built to last.
