Q: Who is responsible for injuries in a construction accident?

A man driving a commercial dump truck was reportedly leaving a construction site when he crashed into a passenger vehicle. The wreck between the disproportionately sized vehicles left the car’s driver with traumatic brain injuries described as “catastrophic”.  The truck driver was reportedly arrested after being apprehended by a police officer after fleeing the scene.

Personal injury lawsuits can be brought by victims who suffer serious injuries as a result of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions or inactions of another person or entity. Once liability is established, the victim may recover compensatory damages for such things as current and future medical expenses, current and future lost income or diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more.

Texas construction accident attorneys know that bystanders as well as workers are often injured or killed by the dangerous machinery and unsafe working conditions that sometimes exist on and around construction sites. When injuries occur, post-accident investigations will examine whether safety regulations were followed in an effort to determine whether the actions or failures to act by involved parties caused the victim’s injuries. For example, were the bystanders, workers, supervisors, general contractors or subcontractors or even defective machinery to blame.

Police in the case at hand reportedly discovered that not only did the driver not have a trucking license, but he was allegedly not known to the supervisor, contractor, and construction crews on site. Yet, he was apparently working and driving a dangerous vehicle at the time of the accident.
