Workers injured on construction sites may have a legal right to pursue a personal injury claim against the person or organization responsible for the accident. This is the case if the accidents were caused by defective equipment, a contractor’s mistake, a delivery person, employer neglect or improper safety management.
When Someone Other Than Your Employer Is Responsible for the Accident
If your construction site injury happened at work but was caused by negligence or a mistake of a third party other than your employer, you may have a right to compensation for medical costs beyond workers’ compensation benefits.
Construction Site Accidents That May Warrant Personal Injury Claims
On a construction site, a general contractor may have four different subcontractors or more working at different times on different aspects of the project. At any stage during this process, something can go wrong that can affect any employee. For instance:
- The scaffolding may be faulty and collapse.
- Warning signs for a hole dug may not be posted.
- The electricity may not be shut down and an employee working on wiring is electrocuted.
- A truck delivering supplies may back into a worker.
