Who Can Be Held Liable for a Lawrence Construction Accident?

Whether you were an employee working on a construction site or a passerby who was injured while in the vicinity, if human negligence is to blame for the construction accident that left you injured, you have the right to pursue justice by filing a personal injury claim. When filing a personal injury claim, one of the first steps our legal team will take to ensure the strength of your claim is to identify the liable party responsible for the losses you have suffered.

Depending on the specific details of your construction accident case, various parties may be liable. These parties include the following:

Contractors and Subcontractors

When other contractors on the site do not adhere to the necessary safety requirements, they may put others on the construction site, and anyone else in the general vicinity, at great risk. The safety standards that contractors and their subcontractors must adhere to include standards relating to fall risks, equipment safety, and site maintenance. If these standards were not met, and you suffered an injury due to a construction accident caused by this negligence, they may be liable for your losses.

Equipment Manufacturers

Construction equipment manufacturers may design, engineer, or manufacture the vehicles, tools, or frameworks used on construction sites. If these manufacturers are negligent and produce faulty equipment, their actions can lead to accidents and injuries if this equipment malfunctions or does not perform properly.

Other Employees

If another employee working at the construction site acts negligently, their careless actions may lead to an accident that can cause serious harm. If this is the case in your construction accident, the other employee or employees who were negligent may be liable for your losses.

The Property Owner

A property owner may be liable for a construction accident if they did not keep the property reasonably safe. If the owner is aware of a construction hazard and does nothing to resolve the issue, they may be held liable for your injuries.

Our Lawrence construction accident lawyers will launch a full investigation into what occurred to ensure we hold the right party liable for the harm they caused you.

Proving Liability in a Construction Accident Case

Once the at fault party has been identified in your construction accident case, the next step is to prove their liability. Proving liability is incredibly important to supporting your claim and helping you pursue justice.

To prove liability our Lawrence, MA construction accident attorneys will collect evidence of the four factors of negligence. The four factors of negligence are as follows:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • The duty of care was breached
  • The breach of duty led to your construction accident and subsequent injuries
  • You suffered a loss as a result

Proving liability in a construction accident case is not only important to ensure you have a strong claim and can get the fair compensation you deserve, but this step of the claims process also helps hold the liable party responsible for their negligent actions that led to your harm.
