Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson

What should I watch out for on a construction site? What’s unique about a construction site? There are a couple of things to watch out for if you do have a personal injury case that arises out of the workplace accident. Number 1, in the workplace there are different industry standards, regulations and codes that are supposed to be followed to prevent workplace accidents. It’s important to understand the relationship between the injured worker, the co-workers, the third parties and the employers and to understand the different contracts that exist among the different parties, because the contracts will spell out oftentimes who is responsible for what. And sometimes based on the contract, different defenders will try to raise particular defenses against the injured person’s personal injury company. It’s important in any workplace accident to get the contracts, evaluate the contracts to understand the applicable codes and then thoroughly analyze them so that you can understand the strengths and weaknesses of the case, and ultimately so you can make your case as strong as possible.
