Construction & Work-Related Injury Lawyers

On average, two construction workers die every day because of work-related injuries in the United States, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In fact, one in five workplace fatalities are construction-related. These construction injuries occur when the safety engineers and safety programs that construction companies are obligated to enact are either negligent or simply absent. No matter what the cause or nature of the work place injury, the worker is entitled to some kind of compensation.

Third Party Liability in Construction Accidents

In certain circumstances, the liability is assigned to a third party for job-site construction injuries. The owners, architects, contractors, and equipment manufacturers can all be held liable for accidents arising from insufficient safety measures. General contractors, as well as all subcontractors, are responsible for providing appropriate safety provisions that ensure a construction site is reasonably safe, including to:

  • Check that all safety specifications are followed
  • Coordinate job safety
  • Hire employees who will use caution while working
  • Warn of possible hazards on the site
