Who is liable for my construction site injuries?
Liability for injuries in a construction accident largely depends on the cause of the accident. In some cases, equipment manufacturers may be liable for damage caused by faulty machinery, tools, or any other defective structure. In other accidents, negligence on the part of co-workers or third party contractors may be to blame. Property owners may be held liable in some cases, particularly if an accident was caused by ground conditions. Other instances may be the result of employer negligence, when an employer does not ensure that a construction site abides by certain safety standards, or workers are not properly trained.
