Construction injury litigation is complex. Identifying the cause of a construction injury requires the knowledge and resources to conduct a skilled investigation. A case can involve a variety of parties and theories of recovery, including inadequate instruction or supervision, violations of rules, regulations or codes in place to keep workers safe, and faulty or inadequately maintained equipment. The general contractor and property owner and in some cases sub-contractors are responsible for ensuring the safety of workers at a construction site. The extent of each party’s responsibility will vary depending on the facts of the accident.
Every year thousands of construction workers are killed or seriously injured while working at construction sites. Although workers compensation helps employees while injured on the job, it is usually not enough to fully compensate injured workers who have suffered serious or catastrophic injuries.
