Construction sites are filled with potential hazards: heavy machinery, sharp and potentially dangerous tools, the scaffolding that raises construction workers and contractors to high altitudes, etc. If the individuals operating and working on these sites are not careful, serious accidents can easily occur. All it takes is one person’s negligence to cause another individual a life-altering injury or even death.

A few examples of construction accident injuries include:
Depending on how the accident occurred in your situation, various different people or entities could be held liable. The property owner, general contractor, subcontractor, and manufacturer of equipment are all possibilities when it comes to who may be obligated to pay you compensation. In general, these parties are responsible for keeping the construction site reasonably safe and to provide adequate and appropriate training. Safety measures, warnings and training are critical at all construction sites.
Typically, the parties involved in construction are responsible for warning workers of possible safety hazards on the construction site, hiring appropriately trained employees, managing all aspects of job safety and checking to make sure the job site remains safe. Equipment manufacturers are obligated to design and manufacture equipment that is safe. If the equipment is dangerous due to a design defect, manufacturing defect, or failure to provide adequate safety warnings, they could be liable for injuries that result from the use of their products.
Many construction accidents are based on someone’s negligence or carelessness. In order to prove that a person or entity owes you compensation for your injury, your attorney will have to show that they owed you a duty to maintain the construction site or equipment in a reasonably safe manner, that they failed to do so, and that this caused your injury.
After a serious construction site accident, you have long-lasting injuries that need attention. Fortunately, if you can make out a case that someone was negligent in causing the accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for all that you have suffered in a way that is designed to make you “whole” again. Although nothing can take away the fact that you have been forced to undergo the injury, compensation in these cases is intended to put you in as close to a place as you would have been without the injury. This means that you may be able to obtain compensation for economic damages, such as expenses, and noneconomic damages such as loss of companionship and pain and suffering. The following may be awarded in a successful personal injury lawsuit:
