Construction workers' jobs are dangerous. On a daily basis, they face some of the most dangerous working conditions in the country. Although regulations, statutes, ordinances and industry standards mandate that employers must provide a reasonably safe working environment, construction workers are not always safe in their jobs. Unfortunately, because these required safeguards are often ignored by those in charge, construction workers continue to suffer serious injuries or wrongful death at an alarming rate.

Who May Be Liable For A Construction Site Injury?
Each case is different. The responsibility for an injury depends on the facts of your case. A thorough investigation may reveal that one or several parties are really responsible for the harm you experienced. These may include:
- Property owners
- General, prime and subcontractors
- Architects, engineers and other designers
- Construction managers
- Suppliers and manufacturers of equipment and materials
So, who is responsible? The liability of these various parties often depends on the type of management and oversight system of the construction project. Your lawyer will investigate who maintains control and authority over the property where you were injured. In many cases, this is the owner or general contractor or sometimes a or a construction management organization.
