Negligent Supervision Accidents 

On construction sites, employers, managers, and site supervisors owe their employees a duty of care to ensure that operations are running smoothly and safely. If an employee suffers an injury due to the negligent supervision by their employer, that employer could be held liable for those injuries.

What is Negligent Supervision? 

Negligent supervision on the job site typically occurs when an employer or those in charge decide to cut corners to accelerate production. It may also occur when employers fail to use reasonable care in the hiring, training or supervising of their employees. Similar to other negligence cases, the injured party must prove that the supervisor owed them a duty of care, that the supervisor breached that duty, and the breach caused injuries and damages to the employee. 

Unfortunately, negligent supervision cases in the construction industry can be more complex than other cases. The plaintiff in a negligent supervision case must also show that the supervisor had direct authority over the details of the project; a supervisor with general, but not direct, authority, may not have owed that employee a duty of care. 

Other considerations in a construction negligent supervision case include whether the injuries were foreseeable to the supervisor or whether the plaintiff should have taken precautions to reduce or prevent their own injuries. In these cases, a plaintiff is tasked with proving that it would have been too difficult to be aware of those risks. If negligent supervision was the cause of your accident and injuries, a personal injury lawyer can help you with the complexities that these types of cases pose.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to negligence on the job site or a defective product, an experienced personal injury lawyer can review your claim and determine if there were unsafe working conditions, potential OSHA violations, and other hazards that may have existed at the time of your accident. They will also determine who may be liable for your injuries and damages and what compensation you may be entitled to.
