Overcoming Challenges in Construction Accident Cases
In cases involving job site injuries or deaths, the first challenge we must face is to determine who is responsible.
Was it another subcontractor? Was it the maker of a defective product used on the job? Was it the general contractor? Were government regulations violated?
Our experience has taught us where to look, what to look for, and what experts will be needed to prove the case.
Construction work is dangerous. However, the dangers of a construction site don’t have to simply be accepted when they cause an accident. If those dangers could have been prevented or resulted from inadequate workplace safety, our lawyers will take action against those who failed to prevent them.

Third-Party Liability in Construction Accidents
Most construction sites these days have more than one contractor working at them. When a third-party contractor or subcontractor violates a safety code or creates a hazard that injures others, they can be held liable over and above whatever workers’ compensation an injured worker receives.
Similarly, in Washington, the general contractor has a duty to ensure a safe workplace for all workers on a given project. In head, spinal cord, burn, and amputation injuries, workers’ compensation may not cover all of your medical bills or expenses.
At Carter & Fulton, we hold third parties financially accountable for injuries they cause through negligence or safety violations. Working with medical economists and life-care planners, we recover compensation intended to cover pain and suffering and expenses that exceed what workers’ compensation can pay for.
All too often, accidents are very clearly the result of poor safety practices. Other times, the reason for accidents isn’t so clear. Either way, we know how to help the people whose lives have been changed by these types of accidents.
