Mississippi Construction Accidents – An Overview
Construction workers and contractors are faced with some of the most dangerous working conditions in any industry. Unfortunately, serious work–related injuries are too common on worksites across Mississippi. The construction industry is highly regulated, with workplace safety laws and educational programs, project specifications, and rigorous inspection requirements, all designed to prevent injuries and promote safety. Even so, accidents often occur, and they will continue due to the nature of the work, and due to company or individual negligence. The types of accidents include falls from scaffolds and rooftops, exposure to asbestos and chemicals, electrocution, injuries due to defective products, unsafe equipment, falling machinery or parts, and lifting or repetitive motion injuries.
Liability for Construction Injuries is Tricky – We’ll Help You
When a serious injury occurs on a job site, a number of different legal scenarios can come into play. You may be entitled to make a workers’ compensation claim, but you may also be entitled to seek recovery from “third parties” who may have contributed to the cause of your accident. Faulty equipment may mean we need to look at a products liability claim against the equipment manufacturer. You may have a claim against the property and land owner, the contractor, and any subcontractors involved with your construction site. Often when many different contractors are involved, they all point the finger at each other when a major injury occurs. We understand the complexities of construction law, we know workers’ compensation law, and we’ll help you determine your best course of action to get you maximum compensation for your injury.
