Construction Site Accidents
Injuries at construction sites are often the result of the negligence of a general contractor, sub-contractor, project manager, product manufacturer, an engineer or architect. The general contractor is responsible for making sure that the worksite is safe and that all the contractors on the job operate safely. Sometimes, people are injured on job sites because the general contractor looked the other way while the employee’s boss forced him or her to work too many hours or in unsafe conditions. In other instances, people are injured on job sites because of dangerous or defective products, such as scaffolding, heavy equipment, or even a ladder.
If someone other than your own employer is responsible for your injuries or for a family member’s death or injury, you may be entitled to more than just what is paid by workers’ compensation. The laws regarding construction site accidents are complex. You don’t have to be an expert, you just have to make sure that you have a lawyer that is experienced and prepared to navigate the system for you.
