Construction Accidents – Who Will Pay My Medical Expenses?
Workers compensation insurance is the first resource an accident victim may use for help. However, there may be other parties involved at the work site who are legally responsible for your injury. A contractor or sub-contractor may be at fault. Your accident may have resulted from a violation of OSHA regulations or a malfunctioning piece of equipment from the equipment manufacturer.
Immediately after an injury, it is imperative to gather all information and begin a thorough investigation of the accident. Immediate attention should be given to the scene of the accident, along with contact of any eyewitnesses. Photographs and videos of the scene, the equipment and working conditions, including the weather, at the time of the accident can render important information as to what went wrong and who is responsible.
Construction accidents include:
- scaffolding accidents
- ladder falls
- roof falls
- trips and falls

- equipment failure or defects
- trench collapses
- forklift accidents
