The mistakes to avoid in construction accident cases that we see sometimes relate to trying to identify the contractors and subcontractors that are present on that site. Often times, you’ll see the big board out front that lists all of the contractors and who the general is, and sometimes they have contractors that will come in on a more temporary basis and they won’t be on the sign. As your attorney, I will need pictures of not only the sign, but also of the trucks, any signs on the trucks or uniforms that people are wearing that might identify what the subcontractors are, especially if they’re responsible for contributing to the cause or whatever dangerous condition caused either the fall or the injury.
Remember, with these premises cases on construction sites, photographing the area where it happened can be critical. Because it’s often against proper safety standards, these areas are often not safe for workers or passers-by. These photos can show an insurance company or a judge and jury just how dangerous the condition was that caused the accident and caused your injury.
