Contractors working on a construction site have a duty to make the area as reasonably safe as possible under the circumstances. Furthermore every one of us has the duty to use reasonable care for our own safety. Thus, if someone decides to walk through a potentially dangerous area, the law requires that person to be on the lookout for hazards and avoid them. If someone’s own carelessness contributes to the accident, that conduct could result in a reduction on any recovery for injuries or in some cases, no recovery at all. If you have any questions regarding this type of claim, please contact our law firm.
