Construction sites pose many dangers to workers and others in the area. Workers often must lift heavy objects, operate large machinery, and perform job duties at elevated heights. Proper protocol and safety practices can decrease a worker or passerby’s risk of being injured. When someone causes a preventable construction accident through negligence, he or she may be liable for the victim’s injuries. For example, a supervisor at a construction site is responsible for enforcing safely measures. Employers of construction workers must properly train their employees. Companies that manufacture construction equipment are liable if their products prove to be defective. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be eligible for compensation.
