Owners of property are responsible for the safety of people using their properties. This goes for landowners at construction sites just as it does for homeowners and owners of office buildings and factories. Our Charleston, West Virginia, law firm can answer questions and provide assistance to workers injured at job sites such as mines and building job sites.
You may assume — and you may have been told — that an injury on the job is compensable by way of a workers’ compensation claim. Assuming that you are an employee, it is likely the case that a workers’ compensation claim is appropriate after you were injured on the job at a job site. However, it is also important to look into questions about who owns the property and what responsibilities the owners have for people engaged in roofing, ditch digging, blasting or repair work on their land.
