Construction Site Injuries

Construction Site Injuries

Construction accidents injure and kill thousands of workers each year. In some cases the claimant must file under the Texas Workers' Compensation Act. However in some cases it can be shown that a third party was at fault. Property owners, architects, contractors, and equipment manufacturers can all be liable for insufficient safety measures when an accident occurs. The general contractor and all subcontractors are responsible for providing the appropriate safety provisions to ensure that the construction site is reasonably safe. It is their obligation to warn of possible hazards on the site, to hire employees who will use caution while working, to coordinate job safety, and to check that appropriate safety specifications are being followed. Manufacturers of construction equipment may also be responsible for designing and maintaining safe products. Dangerous or defective equipment may be at fault in a construction accident, including:

  • Scaffolding
  • Cranes
  • Power tools
  • Ladders
  • Heavy equipment
