Slip & falls at construction sites account for more than 68,000.00 injury claims each year and at least 100 of them are fatalities. These accidents may involve workmen on the job site or may involve non-employees at or near the construction site. The ultimate control of the job site usually goes to the responsibility of the general or prime contractor. The general or prime contractor has a non-delegable (not transferable) duty to maintain a safe working site. If you or a loved is injured while on a job or construction site, you should contact an experienced slip and fall lawyer immediately. Remember, California work comp may play a role in these injuries if you were injured at the time you were doing something within the course and scope of your employment. Thus, you potentially would have two types of claims to pursue – California work comp and the third party that caused your slip or trip and fall injuries!
