Construction Accidents in Northern Virginia 

Owners and employers have a duty to keep worksites safe.  In most cases in Virginia, a worker injured on a construction site cannot sue another party on that site.  There are cases where that is not true, but that is the general rule.  In order to decide if you can even sue the other party, you need to consult with a lawyer who knows this area of the law.

Construction Accidents & OSHA

OSHA is the U.S. agency in charge of job sites. They may send their people to job sites and prepare reports of injury at a job site. Your attorney must obtain these reports. They may disclose the details of how the injury happened and who is in control of the site.  

The issue of control is a big deal as it determines who is the responsible party. This may be the owner, another contractor, or a party who manages the site. An experienced construction accident attorney can help you determine these key pieces of your case. 

Construction Accidents Involving Product Liability & Premises Liability 

Another factor you must look at in regards to construction accidents is potential product liability.  If the worker was harmed as a result of a defect in a hand tool, for example, that may be a product defect claim.  

You must also consider the accident from a premises point-of-view. If a worker is injured on a job site while dropping off items, you should determine if there is a defect in the premises. Is there a hole that was hidden from view? Is there a missing handrail on a set of stairs? Those are all questions that must be reviewed.
