Determinging Liability in a Construction Site Accident
Work accidents can be catastrophic, construction accidents can be particularly catastrophic on account of all the heavy equipment, amount of electricity and other moving parts that are found in your typical construction site. A lot of people like to think that accidents happen in life and that they cannot be foreseen, but the reality is that human action or inaction leading to negligence causes accidents over 90 percent of the time. This means that if you got injured, someone else may be held at fault after investigations. This is important because of the fact that in personal injury law, determining fault or liability may be one of the major things that will stand between you and your compensation. Individuals hurt in construction sites usually suffer severe, life-changing injuries which may not be covered by workers’ compensation, meaning that you may run out of money mid-treatment and may have to change a lot of aspects of your life and that of your family. By determining fault with the help of an attorney, you’ll be able to recover money damages for a number of things such as lost wages, medical costs and rehabilitation costs, among others.
