Construction sites are ripe with opportunities for accidents. Industrial equipment like conveyors and cranes, power tools, ladders, exposed wires, and scaffolding on sites can lead to falls, electrocution, or accidents caused by equipment failure. OSHA violations are another leading cause of accidents on construction sites. Unfortunately, many construction site accidents result in severe personal injury or even wrongful death.
Who should pay?
Workers’ compensation covers many of the costs associated with construction site accidents and injuries. But many accident site victims may be eligible for additional compensation benefits to cover the costs of medical care, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
In some cases, a third party other than the victim’s employer or a coworker may be liable for an accident, such as a product manufacturer, property owner, subcontractor, or vehicle driver. Accident victims may be able to file an injury claim against these third parties with the help of experienced personal injury lawyers.
