Everything You Need to Know about Construction Accidents

Just because a construction site is, by definition, a hazardous place to work, doesn’t mean that when people are injured there, they don’t have legal rights. A construction worker doesn’t enter a construction site and say “I realize this may be a dangerous place to work and therefore I give up all my legal rights if I am injured here.”

Regardless of the risk of injury that accompanies construction sites, all parties having an interest in that project – from the property owners to general contractors, to subcontractors, to machinery and equipment suppliers – have a responsibility to make that construction site as safe as possible.

Lawsuits Resulting From Construction Injuries

A variety of safety precautions are available to employers so that they can reduce the risk of injuries and death. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and other similar organizations gather and promote the latest safety standards formulated to help companies keep their employees as safe as possible. Whether or not an employer or construction worksite owner has decided to ignore or adhered to these safety standards is another matter.

Construction injuries commonly result in lawsuits, which alone can be overwhelming. But a complex network of issues — including workers’ compensation and contractor/sub-contractor relationships — can make the legal landscape of a construction related lawsuit difficult to navigate. So, injured workers should consider consulting a local attorney experienced in construction law.
