What Are Some Common Causes of Construction Accidents?
Some examples of the most common causes of accidents at construction sites include:
- Falling from heights
- Scaffolding collapses
- Getting struck by objects
- Getting caught in or between machinery accidents
- Equipment malfunctions
- Slip and fall accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Trench collapses
These accidents often occur due to different factors, including but not limited to unsatisfactory training, safety violations, and lack of proper protective measures.
Who Do I File a Claim With if I’ve Been Injured at a Construction Site?
Your reason for being at the construction site will determine against whom to file a claim with. If you’re an employee of the construction company, you may file a workers' compensation claim with your employer's insurance.
Additionally, let's say a third party, such as a subcontractor, also played a role in the accident; you might have a personal injury claim against them, even as an employee. On the other hand, if you’re a pedestrian or an independent contractor, you may be able to sue the construction company directly.
Can I Settle Directly With the At-Fault Party Without a Lawyer?
You can settle directly with the at-fault party, but we don’t recommend it. You need a lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are not tricked into settling for less than you deserve.
Can I Sue a Construction Company?
Yes, you can sue a construction company if their negligence or the negligence of their employees contributed to your injuries. That said, we always try to settle these cases out of court to ensure the injured receive the help they need as fast as possible. Going to court, which we were never afraid of, is usually an option if negotiations fail.
