As a long-standing construction accident law firm, we’ve seen almost every type of construction injury case in the book. While some are cut and dried with the employer obviously at fault, others are not, and they require a bit more research and experience to file a successful claim.
Fortunately, if you were hurt on the job at a construction site, you don’t have to navigate the legal process alone. Our construction accident law firm can help you determine the appropriate at-fault party, assist you in filing your claim, and ensure that you get the money you deserve.
Potential parties who may be at fault include:
- Your employer – If your employer failed to maintain a safe, hazard-free, and OSHA-compliant workplace, they could be held responsible for your injuries.
- The contractor in charge of your job site – If a contractor or subcontractor was in charge of maintaining and caring for the job site, they could be at fault for the incident.
- Your coworkers and colleagues – If your accident was caused by the negligence or error of a coworker, they could be liable for a portion of your injuries.
- The manufacturer of a defective tool, piece of equipment, or vehicle – In the event that your injuries were caused by a defective tool or a piece of equipment that failed to function properly, then the manufacturer may be at fault.
- The property owner – On private job sites, where the property owner is in charge, they could be held responsible if you’re injured or in an accident.
In some cases, there may even be multiple parties to blame for your incident, and you could file a claim against one or all of them.
