Construction Accidents Injury Claims Lawyer
Any construction zone can be hazardous, both to those working on the job site and those passing through or near the zone. While workers are covered by worker’s compensation insurance if injuries occur, innocent bystanders may need to pursue a premises liability lawsuit or claim to be compensated for their injuries. These cases can be complex – there may be more than one business or contractor responsible when construction accidents cause injuries. Our team at Race Law Firm can help those who are injured in a construction site accident pursue compensation for their injuries.
It is the responsibility of the property owner, contractors and other business entities involved in a construction project to limit safety hazards. Whether it is roadway construction, erecting a new building or renovations, safety should be a top priority. Heavy equipment, falling hazards and other safety risks must be mitigated. If a person is injured or killed due to poor safety planning, the victim and their family have the right to seek justice and damages against those responsible.
Injuries Caused by Construction Accidents
When safety standards are not utilized on a construction site, injuries are bound to occur. Some construction sites may have several different contractors all working together to complete the project. If there is not a cohesive plan to prevent injuries, innocent bystanders can be put in jeopardy. Injuries can include broken bones, crushing injuries, head trauma, lacerations, burns and almost anything imaginable. Causes can include:
- Crane accidents
- Large truck or machinery accidents
- Trip or fall hazards on sidewalks or walkways
- Falling debris
