Can I Hold My Employer Accountable for a Construction Accident?
Construction is a dangerous field of work, and some minor injuries may be expected. When these accidents occur, construction workers may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to assist them with their expenses while they recover from their injuries.
Some severe accidents, though, may be grounds for a lawsuit. This is the case when an employer commits an act of gross negligence. Examples of gross negligence may include inadequate training or a lack of safety equipment. These acts increase the likelihood of serious injuries.
