Construction Site AccidentsWorking at a construction site is one of the most dangerous occupations in the country. Workers injured at a job site through the fault of defective tools or machines, poor safety management, or employer negligence, need representation by attorneys who are specialized in the field.
Workers injured on a job site may have legal actions against others who have responsibility for various activities on the jobsite, including construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors, and equipment manufacturers. In most construction projects, many different contractors are involved. If any contractor other than the direct employer has responsibility for the injuries, full damages may be recovered. Similarly, if a defective tool, machine, or other product causes injury, an injured worker may eligible to be fully compensated.
