Potential for Construction Accidents
With the rising population, there is likely to be increased construction, and with it, the potential for construction-related accidents. Some of the more common causes of construction accidents include:
- Design flaws that are made by engineers or architects
- A contractor responsible for sourcing materials for a project may select products that do not conform to the contracted standards
- Poor workmanship
- Contractors not complying with local building codes
In recent years, there have been significant injuries caused by collapsing decks. The majority of these incidents have occurred at vacation rental properties that were built more than a decade earlier. Years of exposure to high humidity, salt in the air, and failures in inspection and maintenance have contributed to these accidents. Owners of a property have a duty to keep conditions reasonably safe for those lawfully visiting. Failure to do so makes them liable for any injuries and losses resulting from these unsafe conditions.
