Why Do Construction Accidents Happen?
The reasons are varied, but someone else’s negligence is an all too common pattern that emerges in these cases. Here are a few we have seen over the years:
- Improper or inadequate training on how to operate machinery (forklifts, cranes and scaffolding)
- Safety violations at construction sites
- Defective or out-of-date machinery use
- Wrongdoing of a contractor, equipment supplier, manufacturer or another third party
- Alcohol or drug use on-site
- Distraction or inattention
A construction accident can change your life and some injuries may even put an end to your career. Medical bills, lost income and earning capacity and the physical pain you are suffering can turn life upside-down.
Workers’ compensation may be available, but when negligence is involved at the construction site, learn whether you might also have a third-party liability lawsuit. You have legal rights, but you need to act quickly to protect them.
