    Construction site accidents are unfortunately still commonplace. Thousands of construction workers are injured or killed in construction site accidents each year. Construction companies must inspect each site with safety engineers and provide safety programs, but unfortunately accidents still occur due to the inadequacy of these provisions.

    When a construction site accident occurs the owners, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions. The general contractor and all subcontractors are required to provide a reasonably safe site, warn of hazards inherent in the site and work, hire careful employees, coordinate job safety and supervise compliance with safety specifications.

    Manufacturers of construction equipment are responsible designing and maintaining safe products. Defective or dangerous products can include: scaffolding, cranes, power tools, derricks, hoists, conveyors, woodworking tools, ladders, winches, trucks, graters, scrapers, tractors, bulldozers, forklifts, back hoes, heavy equipment, boilers, pressure vessels and gas detectors, as well as many other types of construction equipment.

    As with workplace accidents and injuries it is often necessary to find liable third parties in the event of an accident or injury. Since most jobs involve many subcontractors it is very common to locate several potential third party Defendants. Your lawyer will also consider claims against the general contractor, who may be responsible for supervision and my be contractually responsible for the injury. In more complex cases, the legal principles of Agency and analysis of Corporate law can lead to sophisticated determinations as to who is technically an "employee" and who the "third parties" are in a given situation.
