What Do I Do If a Construction Site Caused My Injury?
Construction site managers and workers have a responsibility to keep their sites as safe as possible. If they fail to do so, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other passerby who are near the sites could easily be injured. While there are incidents in which the responsible parties take all proper precautions, the unfortunate reality is that negligent behavior does happen among contractors, subcontractors, and construction workers. This can result in further dangers on an already hazardous worksite.
Common construction site accidents that hurt innocent people often involve vehicle accidents, scaffolding or crane collapses, explosions, trip and fall accidents caused by uneven pavement and loose debris, or accidents caused by roadway obstructions. Whatever kind of accident you suffer from in or around a construction site, if it occurs due to a manager or employee’s negligence, then you might be able to take legal action against them. Damages available in these types of cases include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
