Long Beach Construction Accident Lawyer

While an accident can occur at almost any location, construction sites have a certain level of assumed risk for individuals entering the premises. While there is assumed risk when working on, or visiting, a construction site, this does not mean you are not entitled to collect compensation for your injuries and losses. If you were a victim in a construction accident in Long Beach, New York, you have the right to pursue justice by filing a personal injury claim. By filing a personal injury claim, you can collect compensation while also holding the liable party responsible for their negligence.

Parties That May Be Liable in a Construction Accident Case

Construction sites may be riddled with various risk factors that can lead to accidents. However, one of the most common causes of construction accidents is human negligence. When another party fails to act responsibly and causes a construction accident that leaves individuals injured, the victims of this accident have the right to pursue legal action by filing a personal injury lawyer. The parties who may be held liable for your construction accident include the following:

Contractors and Subcontractors

Other contractors are often present on a site while a construction project is taking place. These contractors and subcontractors may not adhere to safety requirements and could endanger the present staff and anyone else in the vicinity, causing an accident.

Manufacturers of Construction Vehicles, Tools, or Scaffolding

If construction vehicles, tools, or frameworks malfunction or are defective, they may be determined to be the cause of a construction accident. If this is the case, the manufacturer of those defective products may be held liable for any injuries or losses victims suffer.

Other Employees

An accident can occur due to another employee’s negligent actions while on the construction site.

Property Owner

If a property owner commits willful acts or a lack of ordinary care in property management when a construction accident occurs, they may be held liable. Additionally, if the owner is aware of a construction hazard but does not resolve it, they may be held partially liable for the incident.

Identifying the liable party is crucial in any personal injury case, especially in construction accidents. To get help identifying the liable party in your construction accident case, contact our team of trusted Long Beach lawyers today.

How Can You Prove Liability in Your Construction Accident Case?

After you have identified the at-fault party in your construction accident case, you must be able to prove their liability. In order to prove liability in any personal injury claim, you must provide evidence of the four factors of negligence. These factors are as follows:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • The liable party breached the duty of care owed to you
  • The breach of duty is what caused your construction accident and injury
  • You suffered a loss as a result

If you are unsure what steps to take to collect evidence for your construction accident case, our team of New York lawyers can help. We will investigate your claim and how the at-fault party’s actions led to the harm you have suffered.
