Who Can Be Liable in a New Hampshire Construction Accident Case?

One of the key steps in moving forward with your personal injury claim after a construction accident is to establish the responsibility of the individual or entities whose negligence contributed to your injuries and subsequent losses. It is essential to prove liability because, without this crucial element, securing recovery or compensation for what you have endured may be challenging. 

Identifying and holding the negligent party accountable is not just about seeking compensation. Proving liability is also about ensuring that those responsible for your accident acknowledge their actions and take responsibility. In cases of construction accidents, several parties could potentially be held liable, including the following:

Contractors and Subtractors

When other contractors on the site do not adhere to safety requirements, they may endanger anyone else in the vicinity. Contractors and their subcontractors must adhere to numerous safety standards, and if those standards are not met, and someone suffers an injury, they may be responsible for victims’ losses.


Manufacturers of construction equipment may design, engineer, or manufacture the vehicles, tools, or frameworks used on site. Sometimes, these manufacturers can be negligent and produce faulty equipment that may lead to accidents if this equipment malfunctions or does not perform properly. 

Other Employees

If another employee working at the construction site is negligent, their reckless actions may lead to an accident that can cause serious harm.

Property Owner

A property owner may be liable for a construction accident if they neglected their duties by not keeping the property reasonably safe. If the property owner is aware of a construction hazard and does not resolve it, they may be held liable for a victim’s injuries in the event that an accident occurs.

Our New Hampshire construction accident lawyers can help you collect all the necessary evidence to identify the liable party to build your claim and ensure you get justice for your injuries and losses.
