Construction Accident Cases
In Michigan a general building contractor may be held liable for damages for personal injuries under certain circumstances. The very nature of construction work lends itself to the necessity of maintaining the safest work environment possible because of the propensity for crippling injuries and death. In a recent case, Guy Vining of the Vining Law Group was able to recover a significant settlement for an individual who was constructing her own home though the service of a general contractor.
In the case the home owner fell from a considerable height from an area that was left unguarded even though it was open to trade people and general laborers.
Specifically, it was alleged that a certain sub-contractor removed safety railings to perform its task but failed to reinstall it leaving a froseeably dangerous condition to exist. The evidence showed that the general contractor had retained control over the project but failed to inspect, discover and ameliorate hazardous conditions.
