The Construction industry is dangerous; in fact, it is one of the leading professions for workplace injuries. Vehicles are dangerous; with 5.4 million police reported accidents in 2011. So the chances are good that if you work in roadway construction, you or someone you care about will eventually be involved in a construction site vehicle collision. When these types of accidents occur, it can be difficult to know who is financially responsible for the resulting injuries, and the answer is not always simple.
While you may be entitled to worker’s compensation benefits, they may fall short. The good news is that you may also be entitled to compensation by a third-party who was partially or wholly responsible for the accident. This is often the case when numerous contractors and agencies are working on one project. If you or a loved one has been involved in a construction site vehicle accident if is important to know who is financially responsible for the physical and emotional devastation caused by the accident.
