  • Understanding Your Legal Options After a Construction Accident

    Workers’ compensation usually covers employees for any injuries suffered on the job and typically restricts lawsuits against employers. However, workers' comp only applies to those who fit the legal definition of an "employee." Independent contractors who are commonly hired to work on construction projects are excluded from workers’ compensation claims. If this applies to your job status, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the construction company and others.

    While many construction site accidents are caused by negligence, intentional actions may also be a possibility. You should talk to Morgan & Morgan to figure out what kind of case you have. Our experienced specialists can meet with you and have an in-depth discussion about your options and any potential compensation.

  • Common Causes of Construction Site Accidents

    How your construction accident happened will play a role in your potential personal injury case. Determining the cause is a crucial step in the claims process. If you’re a third-party contractor, you’re probably not eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim. However, you may be able to file a suit against your employer.

    Employers are responsible for providing their workers with safe tools and equipment that have been inspected and work properly. Failing to provide safe equipment or train employees to use the equipment safely can also lead to liability.

    Construction jobs are often very large, and teams of people are hired to do the work. When one worker is negligent, other workers could be injured. General worker incompetence often leads to accidents and injuries. When workers take on a job they are not prepared for, they can cause accidents that result in injuries. If a coworker on the construction site willfully engages in behaviors that result in injuries, intentional tort may apply.

    Your injuries may also be the result of third-party negligence. This can include the manufacturer or supplier of defective products, including safety gear. The third party might be a trespasser on a construction site. A trespasser could be someone trying to take a shortcut through the job site or someone who doesn't even know they are on a construction site. Trespassers are especially dangerous because they do not know what is and is not safe on a construction site.
