CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT LITIGATION

Construction accident litigation involves injuries that occur on any type of construction project/site. Accidents/injuries often occur during work involving demolition, excavation, grading, erection, maintenance, painting, remodeling, renovation, repair and may also involve use of equipment such as backhoes, cranes, trench boxes, scaffolds, ladders, etc.

Injuries can occur due to unsafe work practices, the negligence of other trades, from dangerous equipment/machinery/tools, falling equipment/materials, trip and falls, etc.

In construction accident litigation, the owner, construction managers, general contractor and/or prime contractor are responsible to provide all workers with a reasonably safe place to work. Additional duties may be imposed by the Michigan Occupation Safety and Health Act (MIOSHA), Local Building Codes, as well as the Association of General Contractors (A.G.C.) And American Institute of Architects (AIA) contract documents.

Construction projects frequently involve multi-employer work sites and complex contracts between the companies performing the work. Because of this, I recommend that if you are involved in a construction accident, that you allow me to review your facts to determine the full extent of your legal rights and remedies.
