With all the construction going on around Seattle injuries to both construction workers and even people not involved in the industry are increasing. It’s important in any situation where someone is injured at or around a construction site to not only analyze the conduct of the person causing the injury but also the contractual relationship between the general and various sub-contractors at the project.
