Even Safety-Conscious Construction Workers Have Accidents
As a construction worker, you face an array of on-the-job hazards every day. No matter how careful you are, or how thorough your safety training, there’s simply some construction accidents you can’t prevent.
As a construction worker, it’s likely you are exposed to all sorts of environments that are out of your control; including underground, up high, on busy roads and build sites. But just because construction sites are by places in which you must exercise extreme caution, doesn’t mean no one is liable if you get hurt.
If you have sustained injuries from a construction accident, you shouldn’t be made to feel like worker’s compensation is your only option. General contractors or subcontractors are required to keep your working environment safe, and can be held liable for your construction accident if they failed to:
- Warn workers of possible hazards on the job site
- Employed other workers who put you in danger by not using caution
- Proactively coordinate safety for each job site
- Make sure safety specifications were being followed

Who’s Liable after an Accident?
The stakes are high when you suffer a construction accident: You need to get back to work as soon as possible, cover incoming bills for medical treatment or therapy, and must manage daily life while possibly suffering through pain and discomfort.
The process of filing a claim for a construction site injury can be complicated since there are a number of parties who can share liability for an unsafe construction site. Don’t try and go at it alone and find yourself pressured return to rough working conditions and long hours, before your injury has healed.
