Legal Liability with
a Construction Injury Lawyer
The details of your specific accident will reveal who could be held liable. For work sites where inadequate safety equipment was provided, the property owner or general contractor may be held at fault. Third parties like subcontractors, architects, and equipment manufacturers can also be held responsible for worksite accidents.
An experienced and dedicated construction injury lawyer will play a crucial role in investigating your accident. We can review the details of the case and help you take action to file a third-party claim.
Questions About Construction Accident
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.
If your fault for a construction accident, partial or otherwise, is proven by court of law, the damages you are seeking may be reduced in correlation with the degree of fault.
