When construction workers report to a job site to perform their job duties, they expect the company and other contractors they are working for/with will maintain the safety of the job site. Maintaining the integrity and safety of the job site is critical for the safety of workers.
When a construction worker is injured at a construction site, he or she may be entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit against the parties responsible for failing to maintain the safety of the site. The responsible party depends on the type of safety failure and who was involved (i.e., property owner, architect, engineer, general contractor, electrical/plumbing/HVAC subcontractor, machine manufacturer, etc.). If you are faced with a construction injury where multiple parties may be involved, you need an experienced attorney to help you identify the responsible parties and hold them accountable.
Although a construction project can derail for a variety of reasons, many of the issues that surface are the result of negligent acts or omissions. Nearly every construction project is governed by a series of contracts that define the responsibilities of each party involved. However, because construction projects are almost always performed by professionals, the professionals are held to certain standards known as “standards of care.” Thus, regardless of the language used in a contract that controls the scope of their job duties, if a professional fails to complete their job, or completes the job in an unsafe and unreasonable manner, they may be liable for any resulting harm caused.
Injures on a construction site can cause devastating consequences that require significant medical treatment and lost time at work which can put a financial strain on you and your family. Worse, it can cause the loss of a loved one.
