Who’s Responsible When a Machine Injures a Virginia Construction Worker?

At the time of your construction injury, you are aware of the pain. You may be aware of the machine, vehicle, or tool involved in your construction injury. Yet, it can be difficult to know why that machine, vehicle, or tool caused you to get hurt. Obviously, the machine is not an independent thinker, and it didn’t decide to take the action that resulted in your injury. However, while understanding what caused your injury can’t undo the harm that has already been done to you, it may be important to you.

Who Caused Your Virginia Construction Accident Injury?

Your Virginia construction accident attorney will investigate the cause of your accident. If you have been hurt by a machine, vehicle, or tool then some of the possible causes we will investigate may include:

  • The operator. The operator may have been negligent and mishandled the machine, resulting in the accident injuries.
  • The manufacturer. A problem with the design of the machine, building of the machine, or directions provided to construction workers with the machine can cause serious injury.
  • The repairer. Sometimes a mechanic or other repairer makes a mistake that causes a machine to malfunction and cause an injury.

Regardless of who was at fault for your construction accident, you may be entitled to recover workers’ compensation or other damages for your construction accident injuries.
