Who is liable for my construction accident?

August 20, 2009

A single construction project could involve dozens of professionals, contractors and companies. As a result, when a worker is injured in a construction accident, there are numerous different people who may be liable. Depending on the size and complexity of the project, the people and/or entities responsible for the construction accident could include:

·         Property owners

·         General contractors

·         Sub-contractors

·         Engineers

·         Designers

·         Architects

·         Equipment or material suppliers

·         Construction managers

·         Safety consultants

In some cases, more than one party could be responsible for your construction accident. There are also times when the at-fault party is not immediately obvious. Every case is unique, and liability will depend on factors such as contractual agreements, legal duties and the circumstances surrounding your accident.

It is important that you identify all potentially liable parties from the outset of a personal injury lawsuit so that you do not lose your ability to seek compensation from them. A lawyer can review the facts of your case and determine who is at fault for your injuries.
