Who Can Be Sued for Negligence in a Construction Accident Case?
A personal injury lawyer, uses appropriate resources to fully investigate your construction accident, whether you're a construction worker, an injured pedestrian or a surviving member of the victim's family.
Depending on the nature of the accident, our firm may initiate a claim against the following:
- Property owners
- Materials suppliers
- Contractors and subcontractors
- Construction companies
- Equipment and machinery manufacturers
If a third party is involved, such as a contractor, subcontractor or landowner, we file a third-party claim against that person or entity. If your loved one died because of a construction accident, we can file a wrongful death claim.
Common Causes of Construction Accidents
The construction industry must contend with "the fatal four," four causes of death resulting from construction accidents. These are falls, electrocution, being struck by an object and being caught in or between objects. OSHA reports that 38 percent of 738 construction deaths in 2011 resulted from falls.
The following conditions can contribute to construction accidents:
- Electrocution from exposed wires or machinery
- Unstable scaffolding and ladders
- Unstable roofing
- Faulty equipment and machinery
- Improper operation of forklifts and cranes
- Falling objects
- Violations of Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regulations
- Improper lighting
- Insufficient ventilation
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Trench collapses and cave-ins
- Building collapses
Common Injuries Sustained in Construction Accidents
Working on a construction site or passing by one poses risks. Construction workers may be covered by their employers' workers' compensation insurance, but pedestrians are not. In these situations, general personal injury rules apply. Our civil litigation experience honed over the course of 38+ years helps us get full and fair compensation for our clients, either through aggressive settlement negotiations or bringing the case to trial.
The following may result from a construction accident:
- Severed limbs, fingers and toes
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head, neck and back injuries
- Broken bones
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of sight
