Answers To Common Construction Accident Questions
How Do OSHA Regulations Influence Construction Accident Lawsuits?
OSHA regulations provide a standard of safety measures in construction sites. They are essential for the safety of all involved workers. In a lawsuit in which OSHA standards were violated, that violation may be evidence of negligence that caused the injury.
Does My Construction Accident Injury Have To Be Catastrophic To File A Lawsuit Against The Negligent Party?
Potential damages to be recovered can vary depending on the severity of an injury. But a construction accident injury does not have to be catastrophic for the injured party to file a lawsuit.
How Does Workers’ Compensation Law In Tennessee Impact Construction Accident Lawsuits?
Typically, filing a workers’ compensation claim is the only option if an employee of a construction company suffers injuries on a construction site. However, there are exceptions. For instance, employees may pursue compensation if an unrelated contractor caused an injury.
