There are more than 150,000 construction accidents each year that lead to injuries. Many people working in a small area while using heavy machinery and rushing to make deadlines can lead to more injuries. These accidents do not just apply to contractors but also non-employees visiting the work site.
Construction negligence depends on a variety of factors. These need to be proven in order for you to get adequate compensation.
- Proof that the injury happened from unreasonable risk at the construction site
- The manager of the construction site knew the danger, yet didn’t take steps to correct it
- A supervisor had knowledge that a guest could be endager and didn’t protect them
- Negligence of the owner or supervisor about the condition and failure to rectify it
The other asterik is ensuring you, the guest was invited to be on the property when the accident happened. Even if the owner did not invite you, however you still have permission to be on the property, the site owner could still be held liable.
