Construction accidents can occur on residential property, commercial property, or at industrial construction sites. When someone is injured or killed on or near a construction site, the owner or general contractor or a subcontractor may be liable for any injuries sustained.  A Construction worker may also have a workers’ compensation claim for injuries occurring on the job.   A civil construction accident case coordinated with the workers’ compensation award is a legal right and can provide additional compensation.

Under state and Federal laws and regulations, contractors and site owners are responsible for providing a reasonably safe work environment, and there are special laws in place to protect those who work in high places, such as on a scaffold, ladder or structural steel. Workers in all trades are exposed to a variety of dangerous conditions at work-sites due to negligent and dangerous conditions and practices of architects, general contractors, subcontractors, product manufacturers, equipment suppliers, and others.
