There may be multiple responsible parties held liable to a pedestrian, who was injured while walking past a construction site. If you were injured due to negligence while passing by a construction zone, you may be permitted to recover your damages in a personal injury lawsuit. If a contractor, subcontractor or owner on the site knew about the hazardous condition or failed to resolve it, there may have been negligence. In other instances, someone injured at a construction site may also be able to file a suit against the architect or engineer of the site if the accident occurred due to a building defect.
