Construction sites are dangerous places to work, even more so when safety measures are not followed, enforced, or respected. Often times accidents can be avoided with attention to detail and safety warnings, guidelines, and requirements. Regardless, accidents can and do happen even on the safest sites. Because of that, construction companies often have insurance or financial reserves specifically assigned to provide compensation to those injured on a construction site.
Many attorneys specialize in dealing with construction companies and their insurance providers, as cases are often complex and time consuming. It is the job of the attorney to prove the business was negligent or intentionally at fault, which directly caused the injury or accident. If the injured person is not an employee the lawsuit is usually a personal injury case. If the injured is an employee the case usually defaults to workers compensation laws.
Laws mandate that employers retain workers comp insurance; ensuring injured employees receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses that result from a work-place injury. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulates workplace safety measures to help safeguard construction sites, making them as safe as possible.
