Who is liable for an accident on a construction site?

Injuries sustained from an accident on a construction site can be very complex to manage from a legal perspective. There are usually many factors at play in such accidents, and since so few are alike, a great deal of the case is dependent on the circumstances of the accident. If you are a construction worker and you suffer an accident on a construction site, you probably know that you will be entitled to benefits from workers' compensation coverage. What you might not know is that you could also be entitled to compensation from other sources.

Manholes in New York could cause devastating injuries

If you live in New York City, you may want to start taking considerable care where you step. A sudden and dramatic increase in manhole incidents is becoming a serious risk of injury for all of the city's residents, and you never know which manhole might be next. New York residents may feel that manhole accidents are nothing new; the city averages more than 2,000 per year after all. But if the first few months of the new year are any indication, this year will greatly surpass the average.

Constructions zones can be dangerous

Construction workers are often expected to work in less than ideal conditions, not only because the circumstances of their workplace are subject to rapid change, but also because sometimes reasonable precautions are simply not taken. Unfortunately, many of these workplaces are very public, such as the streets of a busy city or along a major highway. These dangerous conditions can put not only the construction workers, but other bystanders at risk. It's never easy to see victims suffer injury from a problem that could easily have been avoided.
