When a construction site accident occurs, responsibility for the personal injury can be attributed to a variety of individuals or businesses, including the owners, contractors and subcontractors, engineers, electricians, scaffolding companies, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment. In complex cases, in addition to negligence and workers compensation, a construction accident lawyer must also consider the legal implications.
Development companies are asked to build buildings and homes faster. As a result, shortcuts are made exposing the hardest workers to danger. Victims of construction accidents typically are the carpenters, roofers, cement mixers and sheet rockers. If the construction accident was caused by another company other than your employer, you have the right to investigate and file a lawsuit.
