Construction sites are notorious for being a dangerous place to work. In 2021, over 1,000 construction works lost their lives due to a construction accident. Others have been injured and left unable to work. While some injuries are caused by genuine accidents, there is no denying that work-related injuries can be severely debilitating. If you or a loved one are a construction worker in Montgomery County who has suffered from an accident and is unable to work, you may be eligible for compensation. With the help of the experienced Montgomery County construction accident lawyers at Raynes & Lawn, you can fight for redress.

What is a Construction Accident?

A construction accident refers to any incident that occurs on a construction site resulting in injury, property damage, or even death. These accidents can encompass a wide range of incidents, including falls, equipment malfunctions, scaffolding collapses, electrical accidents, or incidents related to unsafe working conditions. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the leading causes of construction site fatalities and severe injuries, known as the “fatal four,” include falls, electrocutions, being struck by objects, and getting caught in or between objects.

Often, these accidents are caused by the oversight of site owners, contractors, and sub-contractors.

Who Can Be Held Responsible For a Construction Accident?

Despite the stringent measures in place to protect construction workers from accidents, accidents happen. In such an event, several parties can be held accountable, including:

  • Employers: Those responsible for ensuring a safe working environment and adherence to all necessary safety regulations and protocols.
  • Contractors and Subcontractors: Entities responsible for specific tasks or areas within the construction site, liable for maintaining safe working conditions within their designated areas.
  • Manufacturers and Suppliers: Those responsible for producing and supplying construction materials and equipment, accountable for ensuring the safety and reliability of their products.
  • Site Owners: Individuals or entities owning the property where the construction is taking place, responsible for ensuring the overall safety of the construction site.

Identifying the responsible parties is essential in building a comprehensive legal case to seek rightful compensation for the damages incurred.
