A person injured while on a construction site or as the result of construction may have rights to financial compensation from the negligent party. This compensation aims to account for the financial and personal losses suffered by the injured party.

If you were injured on a construction site, you may benefit from speaking with a dedicated injury attorney. A Southampton construction accident lawyer could provide essential legal insight to help you effectively recover the compensation you are owed.

Accidents on Construction Sites

Construction sites are hazardous areas that could potentially cause harm to workers, pedestrians, and motorists. Many accidents in construction sites are due to the construction employee’s negligence, or the negligence of the company itself.

Types of accidents can include, but are not limited to:

  • Slip and falls
  • Equipment failure or defects
  • Worker fatigue
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Falling debris and objects
  • Scaffolding failures
  • Fires and explosions
  • Electrocutions

Any of these incidents can result in catastrophic harm that requires substantial time and money to treat. If another’s negligence resulted in an accident on a construction site, a skilled attorney in Southampton could determine if a civil lawsuit may be an appropriate method to gain significant financial compensation.

Potential Defendants in a Construction Incident

Several different parties may be responsible for a construction accident and could owe financial compensation to the injured plaintiff. In many cases, multiple defendants may be responsible at the same time. The types of parties who may be responsible include:

  • Individual Tortfeasor — The actual person who committed a negligent act that led to the injury is likely liable for the plaintiff’s injuries
  • Contractors — Contractors have a duty of care to keep workers safe, and failures to abide by laws and regulations can create liability
  • Site Owners — Depending on the level of control the site owner has on the project they could be liable for injuries that occur
  • Manufacturers — If a defective product caused the injury, the manufacturer of that product may be liable if their negligence was the reason the plaintiff was injured

Determinations of liability for injuries on a construction site are best left to a knowledgeable Southampton attorney who can analyze the practical and legal implications of the plaintiff’s case.

Filing Within the Statute of Limitations

Pennsylvania law sets a two year statute of limitations for most personal injury claims, under 42 Pa. Con. Stat. Ann. § 5524. If an injured person does not file their case within this two year time period, the case will very likely be dismissed as untimely, and the case will not be allowed to proceed.

The best way to avoid this potential problem with the statute of limitations is to contact a skilled local attorney as soon after a construction accident as possible.
