Construction Site Accidents
Construction site accidents are an unfortunate consequence of the industry. Injuries may result from improper means and methods of construction to errors in the design or project administration. The key to success in defending such claims starts with identifying the specific roles, responsibilities, and scope of work of all involved in the construction process to determine responsibility for site safety measures. It can range from the owner, the lead design professional, the construction manager, the general contractor, or subcontractor. We have successfully defended such claims with a keen examination of the project administration, the specific circumstances leading to the incident, and an evaluation of the responsibilities of all involved in the project.
