Establishing What Qualifies as a Construction Accident

A construction accident would be something that occurs on a designated construction site, typically, although pedestrians or others can be hurt being near construction sites – maybe something falls off of a building, maybe a truck pulls out of a construction site and hits them – so there are other related types of construction injuries, construction accidents. Generally, a construction accident would be basically on a job site with people working. Boynton Beach construction accident lawyers understand what constitutes a construction accident claim and what does not.

Accident Liability for Employees and Nonemployees

This is a whole very specialized, very intricate area of the law. First of all, if an individual is on the job site and they are hurt on a job site and they are working on a job site, workers’ compensation may preclude them from suing anyone other than receiving workers’ comp benefits. With that said, most of the time all the people working on a worksite do not work for one company.

They might be independent contractors, might be subcontractors and there is a whole litany of analyses that have to be gone through to determine what is the status of the person injured on the job site and what is the status of the person who caused the injury on the job site. There are times when a person can get around workers’ compensation and go after the negligent act of the other depending on where they stand with regards to the overall contractor. People not involved with construction sites could be hit by falling debris, they could be injured by people coming and going from the construction site. A person not involved in the construction project should not be on the site.

If the person is not invited to go on the construction side, it is a felony to go on a construction site uninvited. It is a much harsher penalty than trespassing and the reason for that is because construction sites are inherently dangerous. People going on construction sites have to be exercising a high level of diligence to make sure that they are not exposing themselves to unnecessary risks. Typically, if a person is working at a construction site, they are going to be covered under workers’ compensation and not be able to sue the owner or builder but there are exceptions. This is why you should contact Boynton Beach premises liability lawyers who have dealt with these cases may find a way to get around workers’ compensation and sue directly for the injuries that occurred.
