Building Your Case Against Construction Site Personal Injury Accidents

Construction sites can be found across the country at any given time, and though those who run most construction sites do their best to make sure that the sites are as safe as possible, accidents in and around construction sites are very common, especially in high density areas like Los Angeles where lots of construction is constantly happening. Depending on the circumstances surrounding such an accident, different types of law may apply. If you are a bystander near a construction site and you are injured on or near the site, personal injury law would apply to the particulars of your situation. If you find yourself in such a situation, a lawsuit may be initiated against those who caused any damage resulting from the accident, if they were responsible for causing the accident, upon which time damages may then be recovered. If you are an employee, personal injury law could be the applicable law, though it is certain that employer/employee law would be the most likely area of law that is looked at.

To determine if a construction employee, or anyone in the chain of command of a construction site, is liable for any harm that may have come to you, you first have to determine whether or not there was a duty of care owed to you, and if so, by whom. For example, the engineer who helped provide the blueprints for the construction site will not be responsible for any accident involving workplace negligence. Determining liability can sometimes be difficult, especially if you are dealing with a construction site with many different employees and involved parties. Sometimes you may even have a case where there is no duty owed, either to the employee or to non-employees nearby, but there is knowledge of a dangerous condition on the site. Failure to properly warn or signify that such a condition exists is ground for liability for any damage caused by that condition. These matters can get tricky.
