Construction Accidents Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
Construction is always occurring, whether it is erecting a new building or renovating an existing structure. Construction zones are often hazardous, both for those working on the sites and bystanders. When an injury accident occurs in a construction zone that involves a non-worker, there may be a few different entities that can share responsibility. If you are injured at a construction site, you need an experienced personal liability lawyer to help you determine who is at fault and fight for your right to compensation.
Construction zone accidents are often complex due to the different contractors and businesses working in the same area. Premises liability laws require the owner of the property to maintain a safe environment to prevent injuries, but construction zones are unique. If a person is injured due to the actions of a contractor, the property owner may not be liable. In some cases, both the property owner and the contractor may share liability for the injury. Each case is different and requires an attorney that can look at all angles to find the best option for compensation for the injured party.
Types of Construction Zone Accidents
There are many hazards at any construction site. The nature of construction requires moving materials, power tools and often the use of heavy equipment. Both the property owner and the contractors working on the site have an obligation to maintain a safe worksite and protect others from injury. Unfortunately, negligence can result in injuries, even death, for those that are innocent bystanders. Some construction zone accidents can include:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Falling materials
- Heavy equipment crushing accidents
- Chemical exposure
