Personal Injury on Construction Sites

Personal injury on construction sites poses significant risks to workers and bystanders alike. These incidents can result from various hazards such as falls, falling objects, equipment malfunctions, or unsafe working conditions. At Artemis Law Group, we provide strategic legal guidance to help victims of construction-related injuries secure just compensation.

What Is Personal Injury on Construction Sites?

Personal injury on construction sites refers to accidents and injuries sustained by workers, visitors, or bystanders at construction locations. These incidents can result from various hazards present on construction sites, including falls from heights, collapsing structures, machinery accidents, electrocution, or falling objects. Construction sites pose inherent risks due to the presence of heavy equipment, unfinished structures, uneven terrain, and ongoing construction activities, making them prone to accidents that can cause severe injuries or fatalities.

Identifying liability in such cases involves assessing factors such as negligence, unsafe working conditions, inadequate training, equipment defects, or violations of safety regulations. Our skilled construction attorneys specialize in construction site accidents and can advocate for injured parties, conduct thorough investigations, negotiate with insurers, and pursue legal action to hold responsible parties accountable and secure compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred.

Common Reasons for Personal Injury on Construction Sites:

  • Falls from heights due to a lack of fall protection measures or unsecured scaffolding
  • Being hit by falling objects, equipment, or vehicles on the construction site
  • Injuries caused by being caught between machinery, materials, or structures
  • Malfunctioning or improperly operated machinery
  • Contact with live electrical wires or faulty equipment
  • Slips or falls caused by uneven surfaces, debris, spills, or inadequate lighting
  • Exposure to toxic substances, chemicals, or asbestos
  • Strains, sprains, or musculoskeletal injuries from repetitive tasks or poor ergonomics
  • Heatstroke, dehydration, or exhaustion due to high temperatures and inadequate hydration
  • Reduced alertness, impaired judgment, or slower reaction times due to long work hours

Personal Injury on Construction Sites FAQs

Who can be held liable for personal injuries on construction sites?

Liability for personal injuries on construction sites may extend to various parties, including property owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, equipment manufacturers, and regulatory agencies, depending on their roles and responsibilities.

What should I do if I'm injured on a construction site?

If you’re injured on a construction site, seek medical attention immediately, report the incident to your supervisor or site manager, gather evidence, such as photographs and witness statements, and consult our attorney to understand your rights and explore legal options.

What is the difference between workers' compensation and a personal injury claim for a construction site accident?

Workers’ compensation provides benefits to employees injured on the job, regardless of fault, while a personal injury claim allows injured parties to pursue compensation from third parties, such as contractors or property owners, for negligence or unsafe conditions.

What is the difference between negligence and wilful misconduct?

Negligence occurs when a party fails to exercise the level of care that a reasonable person would under similar circumstances, such as a failure to adhere to industry standards, building codes, or safety regulations. Wilful misconduct involves intentional actions or omissions done with knowledge of the risks involved and disregard for the consequences, such as cutting corners, ignoring safety protocols, or providing false information.
