It’s an understatement to say that there’s a lot at stake on construction projects. But as obvious as that seems, the construction industry is still rife with accidents that, at the very least, hang up the process unnecessarily.
And at worst, result in major lawsuits against the property owner or management companies.
We’ve encountered many situations over the years where corners were cut, either when we’ve come in to consult mid-job where someone else had started, or to do work years later on building issues where it’s clear bad choices resulted in repairs.
Cut corners can lead to equipment failure or construction teams not following safety procedures, and both of those are the biggest contributors to construction accidents.
Here’s how that comes into play.
Shoddy Construction Management Standards Lead to Costly Mistakes
Construction managers, whether it’s the head of a construction firm or even the site foreman, need to have firm control of the project to keep everyone safe.
The biggest causes of injured construction workers calling construction accident attorneys tend to be scaffolding accidents, falls, and crane accidents.
The reason these lawsuits succeed is because somewhere along the way, there were blatant oversights that led to floors giving out and workers falling. Or weak scaffolding to give way and cause grievous injury or death. Nobody wants a mistake like that on their record.
And in basically all of those situations, there was likely someone in charge shrugging a shoulder and saying it was no big deal. That’s not to throw shade — it’s just the reality that’s been the case many times.
