One of the most dangerous jobs in America belongs to workers at construction sites. When the pressure to meet deadlines mixes with heavy equipment and many jobs trying to be completed all at once, the recipe for injuries rises dramatically. It’s no different in Brownsville, where construction sites remain hazardous even when safety is generally made a priority.
The Key Issues When Seeking Compensation for Your Injuries
If you’ve been injured while on the job at a construction site in Brownsville, you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney you can sue for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs, depending on the circumstances of your accident.
In Brownsville, there are two key issues to winning a construction accident case.
First, you must determine which parties on a construction site may be responsible for your injuries. It’s easy to point a finger at the general contractor, but if there are any sub-contractors on site or others involved in the project such as engineering firms or architects, they may also be held as liable in addition to those actively involved in the day-to-day work.
Once you have established who all the responsible parties are, your attorney must then set about the task of proving that it was their negligence that caused your injuries. This can range from obvious and easy if you are hit by a delivery truck or injured in a fall due to a lack of safety precautions, to much more difficult ways to prove negligence, such as if there are design flaws that caused the accident or if you are accused of being a contributor to your injuries.
