Construction Site Accidents
Construction Zone Accidents happen due to inadequate or non-existent personnel to control traffic, unclearly marked construction zone areas, poorly placed signs and barricades, improperly trained construction workers, defective equipment, crane or ladder malfunctions.
Typically, layers of responsible parties: contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers and other companies have failed to adhere to state and federal regulatory safety standards. Developing testimony of witnesses and experts to show the violation of these standards to a judge and jury is crucial early in the case development.
Although the proper safety practices can decrease a worker or passerby’s risk of being injured in a construction zone, it is also the duty of contractors to ensure that warnings are issued in these hazardous construction areas. Construction accidents are preventable, but may occur because of the negligence of a person, supervisor and company.
