Who Can Be Held Liable for a Construction Accident?

In a construction accident case, many parties may share liability for your accident, including:

Your Employer

Your employer is responsible for providing a safe work environment and ensuring compliance with safety regulations. If you were injured on the job site due to dangerous or hazardous conditions, your employer could be held liable. If your employer participates in the workers’ compensation system, you will file a claim with workers’ comp, which will provide benefits, even if you were to blame for the accident. 
Texas is the only state that allows an employer to opt out of workers’ compensation insurance.  If your employer does not participate in the workers’ comp system, you may need to file a lawsuit against them to recover compensation for your accident-related losses.

Subcontractors who were hired to perform specific tasks on the construction site may be liable for accidents caused by their negligence or improper work practices.
