Construction jobs are one of the most physically demanding and exhausting jobs in our country. Workers on construction sites must be constantly alert to all safety conditions. Any small lapse in judgment can lead to grave consequences for the injured worker or their family. Construction accidents cause injury to thousands of workers every year and include fatalities. Construction jobs are known to be amongst the most dangerous jobs in the country. Heavy trucks, over-sized equipment including power tools, along with gas pipelines create numerous hazards for many workers on construction projects throughout California.

LIABILITY FOR CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS, WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?
Construction accident liability for injuries could extend to the owners of the project, contractors and equipment makers. Overall, there is a duty to make sure the work areas are reasonably safe for all workers. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has implemented safety regulations that must be applied and utilized by all companies on site at construction projects.
Construction accident injuries sustained while working against your employer fall under the category of a workers compensation claim. However, it may be also possible to bring a third party liability claim against a subcontractor, architect, property owner or equipment manufacturer for injuries or a fatality caused by negligence. A third party liability claim is completely separate from a workers compensation claim and involves someone other than your employer.
A successful settlement in a third party liability claim will help the injured victim or family recover for pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity and medical bills associated with the claim.
