Construction sites pose a wide variety of hazards for workers and visitors alike. Anyone who is injured in an accident on a building project has the right to work with a New Orleans construction accident lawyer to seek compensation from those responsible, whether it is the property owner, the builder or a subcontractor.

Types of Construction Accident Claims

Construction site accidents can raise a number of different legal claims. Some of the most common include:

  • Personal injury: Property owners and construction companies have a legal responsibility to keep the site in a reasonably safe condition and perform the work without negligence.
  • Defective products: In the event that an accident is caused or made worse by defective or malfunctioning equipment, the company that produced the equipment may be liable.
  • Wrongful deathWhen a person dies in a construction accident, his or her loved ones have the right to seek compensation for wrongful death.

Common Causes of Construction Site Accidents

Workers and contractors are exposed to significant vulnerabilities when operating on a construction site. Heavy equipment, unstable surfaces, and faulty equipment increase the likelihood of accidents. Some of the leading causes of construction accidents that a New Orleans construction accident lawyer can help you with include:

  • Poor or inadequate training
  • Negligent supervision
  • Safety protocols that are ignored
  • Collapsed structures and unstable surfaces
  • Improper use or maintenance of equipment
  • Mechanical hazards (often causing amputation and crush injuries)
  • Falls from height and falling objects
  • Explosions and fire
  • Electrical accidents

Construction Accident Liability in Louisiana 

It is most common for personal injury claims related to construction accidents to be filed against third parties, including the owner of the property where the accident happened, a general contractor or subcontractor, the leading contractor on the job site, architects/engineers who have a duty to ensure compliance and safety, and the manufacturers of tools and equipment that construction workers rely on every day.
