Construction and work site-related accidents can occur in a variety of ways. Accidents involving machinery and equipment, scaffolding, welding, falls, debris, falling objects, electrocution, explosions, structure failure all can cause lasting and permanent injuries. While many of the claims of a construction worker may be handled through the Workers’ Compensation remedy, third parties are often negligent allowing for additional claims to be brought on behalf of the worker in order to provide full compensation. For innocent bystanders who are injured as a result of the negligent actions of a person(s) or company, the Workers’ Compensation statutes are not applicable and such bystanders have the right to pursue a claim.
