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.
Third Party Liability
A third party means someone besides the employer or owner is liable for injuries. This could be full or partial responsibilities. For example, if defective equipment is the cause of an accident, then the manufacturer of the equipment would be legally liable as a third party. Sometimes, third party construction liability lawsuits are the only means for compensation for injuries.
Other Third Parties include:
- Delivery Companies
- Inspectors / Inspection Companies
- Other Employees
- Contract Security
