Construction Accidents

Construction sites pose many dangers to workers as well as bystanders. Construction workers are subject to a high level of risk as they are often involved in potentially dangerous tasks: lifting heavy objects, operating large machinery and performing job duties at elevated heights.  Still, proper protocol and safety practices can decrease risks to workers as well as bystanders. When an otherwise preventable accident results in personal injuries to a construction worker or a bystander, he or she may have grounds to pursue a monetary award. 

There are also situations in which the worker can obtain a monetary recovery from other parties who may be deemed liable, such as companies that manufacture construction equipment that proves to be defective.

Whether you are a construction worker or a bystander who suffered an injury as the result of an accident at or near a construction site, you may be entitled to a monetary award. Our experienced attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and pursue your claim so that you receive the monetary award you deserve.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

There are innumerable ways in which individuals sustain personal injuries at a construction site.  Examples are scaffolding accidents, falls, electrocution, and improperly braced trenches.

In determining the liability for personal injuries sustained at a construction site, one must understand each party's responsibilities at the site. Any of the following parties may bear total or partial responsibility:

  • Site Owners
  • General and Sub-Contractors
  • Architects and Engineers
  • Manufacturers of Construction Machinery or Equipment
