Construction Accident Causes
Any number of things can go wrong at a construction site. Common causes of construction accidents include:
- Lack of or inadequate training for construction worker
- Inadequate number of workers on a construction site
- Negligence and wrongdoing of a contractor, equipment supplier, product manufacturer, or another third party
- Substance abuse on the job
- Defective, damaged or worn-out materials, tools, equipment or machinery
In order to prevent construction accidents, a construction company is legally responsible for inspecting all work sites to ensure compliance with safety regulations and premises liability law. Additionally, manufacturers of construction tools and equipment are legally responsible for ensuring their products are not damaged or defective. If these regulations are neglected, construction accidents can occur and result in serious consequences for workers and/or unsuspecting passersby.
If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death in a construction accident, you may be eligible to recover your damages including medical costs, lost income or earning capacity, pain and suffering and more. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, a product manufacturer, construction company, or other negligent third party could be held accountable for your losses.
