Construction accidents often result in serious injuries, loss of work, medical bills, and even disability. When a construction worker is hurt on the job both the employer and the injured worker often hire a construction accident lawyer. For the injured person, a construction accident lawyer will investigate the case thoroughly to determine whether the employer was at fault and to assess the severity of the injury for compensation purposes. Attorneys who defend employers in these types of cases often focus on the personal actions of the injured person to determine whether he or she was negligent or not following safety precautions. The factual investigation is vitally important in construction accident cases to prove that the accident occurred as part of the worker's normal duties, and that the employer either was negligent in his workplace safety policies or violated local state or federal safety standards.
