Oakland Construction Accidents: Who is Liable?
The liable party in an Oakland construction accident may vary depending on the particular situation. If you are a visitor to the site or were a pedestrian struck by a falling object or who slipped and fell due to an object in the walkway, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. You would need to prove the negligence of an employee of the construction company or of the company itself, such as poor observance of safety standards or a failure to maintain equipment, secure scaffolding or otherwise maintain proper safety and training at the site. It will typically require a thorough analysis of the incident and exactly what led to the accident in order to determine what caused it to occur and who should be held responsible.
