Who Can Be Held Liable in a Construction Accident?

In North Carolina, liability for a construction accident can be determined based on various factors and parties involved in the project. The specific circumstances of the accident will dictate who can be held responsible. Here are some parties that could potentially be held liable:

  • Property Owner: The owner of the construction site may be held liable if they failed to provide a safe working environment or if they were negligent in maintaining the premises.
  • General Contractor: The general contractor overseeing the construction project can be held liable if they failed to implement proper safety measures, adequately supervise the workers, or if their actions or decisions contributed to the accident.
  • Subcontractors: Subcontractors working on the construction site can also be held responsible for accidents if their negligence or unsafe practices led to the incident.
  • Architects and Engineers: If the accident was caused by a design flaw or engineering error, the architects or engineers involved in the project may be held liable for their professional negligence.
  • Equipment Manufacturers: If the accident was caused by a defective or malfunctioning piece of equipment, the manufacturer or supplier of that equipment could be held liable under product liability laws.
