Construction sites can be dangerous places, and injuries involving construction sites are not uncommon. If you've been injured in an accident at a construction site due to someone else's negligence, you have the right to be compensated for your injuries.
Construction accidents can take many forms, including:
- Being hit by falling material
- Machinery and equipment injuries
How you go about seeking recourse for whatever kind of injury you've suffered will depend in large part on your relationship to the construction site. If you are an employee at the site, you can seek damages from your employer as a job related injury, which will be treated as a workers' compensation case. If you are injured as a bystander, you can seek damages under personal injury law, much as in any dangerous premises case.
