Most construction negligence cases fall under two categories, property damage caused by construction negligence and personal injury caused by construction negligence. These cases are often complex because there are so many variables to consider. Was the injured party aware of the construction? Did the incident occur during construction or after? Who is responsible for the damages incurred?
If you are considering the complexity of a construction negligence incident you need to consult experienced attorneys. In addition to knowledge of the law, these cases demand an attorney who is well versed in construction operations, state and federal regulations (including OSHA), and construction safety standards.
