Who Is Responsible for My Construction Site Accident?

construction site accidentsThe construction industry is no doubt one of the most dangerous industries to work in. Construction sites can be a hotbed for serious accidents that result in tragic injuries, both for workers and passersby. There are many ways in which equipment, tools, or plans may fail, resulting in dangerous risks for workers and anyone else in the vicinity.

If you or a loved one suffered an injury at a construction site because of the negligence or errors of another person or party, you have legal options. Different parties are responsible for the safety and security of a construction site, and if any of those parties fail to fulfill their duty by caring for workers and passersby, they should be held accountable for any resulting construction accidents.

Possible Parties Responsible in a Construction Site Accident

The State of New York has implemented workplace safety laws that require site managers and companies to maintain a safe construction site in all aspects. If a site fails to comply with these laws and regulations resulting in an unsafe condition that causes a worker or passerby to get injured, the site manager or contractor could be held liable. Not only must those in charge of the site maintain a supportive environment, they must also provide appropriate safety equipment and proper, functioning tools. Furthermore, any sub-contractors responsible for any part of the construction site also have a duty to abide by the safety regulations and to warn workers of any potential hazards.

Design professionals in charge of the project may also be held accountable for any accident and resulting injury that is caused by a defective or illegal plan. If the plan fails to follow state laws and regulations, the design professional is liable for any injury caused by the oversight or negligence.

Machine manufacturers could also be responsible for any injury caused by equipment that was improperly maintained, designed or built.

Protecting the Rights of Injured Construction Workers

Construction sites can seriously injure or kill construction workers as well as innocent bystanders. These victims and their loved ones may have a valid personal injury claim or wrongful death claim against the responsible parties.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
