Who is responsible for my construction accident?

Any mistake on a construction site can expose both workers and passersby to serious hazards. While most people assume that construction accident liability rests with the employer/site manager, when it comes to defective equipment, there are actually other parties that could be responsible, including the equipment designer and/or manufacturer. You should discuss the specifics of your situation with an experienced construction accident lawyer to determine who is ultimately responsible for your unnecessary suffering.
