Construction Negligence

In some instances a worker injured or killed on a jobsite not only has a claim against his employer for worker’s compensation benefits but may also have a claim against the general contractor. Claims may also exist against subcontractors on the jobsite for the creation of a dangerous condition. A common defense to a construction negligence claim is that the general contractor owes no duty to a subcontractor’s employee injured or killed on a jobsite. The determination of whether a meritorious claim for construction negligence exists requires evaluation of facts of each individual case by a competent litigation attorney.
