Large construction sites can be confusing places, bustling with bodies, equipment, noise, and movement. But, aside from the organized chaos that’s the norm on many construction sites across Texas, there’s also a web of legal chaos that can snare unwary workers who have been injured.
Multiple Responsible Parties Can Cause Confusion in the Aftermath of Construction Accidents
When it comes time to start asking questions about compensation, construction workers often have a difficult time determining who is responsible for the cost of their injuries, and they may have to follow a trail of legal responsibility that involves numerous people and companies who may be responsible. These parties may include:
- The construction company
- A supervisor or manager
- Property owners
- Negligent individuals
- The person responsible for maintaining equipment involved in the accident
- The company that manufactured faulty equipment
Each of these parties will likely do everything they can to minimize their potential liability after an injury—sometimes even at the cost of the injured worker’s well-being. That’s why it’s so important to reach out for legal help after you’ve been injured in a construction accident.
