It’s always nice to see construction companies hard at work throughout a city. Whether they’re renovating older property or building additional houses and businesses, their work brings value to the community. Unfortunately, regardless of the type of project, construction workers are not immune to accidents in the workplace. A few of the most common construction accidents that occur on sites involve workers being injured by falling off a roof, scaffolding, or because of a broken or defective ladder. Did you know that under current Vermont law, the property owner and/or general contractor can be held liable for workers that have been hurt by falling objects from an elevated height, or for injuries that are suffered as a result of a fall?
