Generally, an injured worker cannot sue their employer for injuries arising from work related activities, but if it can be proved that a third party’s negligence caused the injuries, that party can be held liable.
Additionally, in some instances, workers may be injured at a construction site due to their own inadvertence or due to a condition that was no person’s fault. When a worker is injured due to his or her own negligence or that of his or her employer, or due to a condition which was nobody’s fault, that injured party can still receive compensation in most states through Workers’ Compensation.
Determining Liability for Job Site Accidents
Sometimes a third party such as an owner, architect, or equipment manufacturer can be blamed for injuries occurring at a construction site if safety provisions are inadequate.
General contractor and subcontractors are required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards inherent in the site, to hire careful employees, to coordinate job safety, and to supervise compliance with safety specifications. If these requirements are not adhered to, and a worker is injured as a result, the third party can be held liable.
Manufacturers of construction equipment are responsible for designing and maintaining safe products. If a faulty or defective product causes an injury, your Los Angeles construction accident lawyer will help make the manufacturer provide compensation for your injuries.
