Construction sites are notoriously dangerous, and contain many hazards. In fact, construction sites and among Hawaii's most dangerous work places. Common work placed accidents include falls from scaffolding, roofs or ladders, being struck by objects, electrocutions and welding injuries. While in some circumstances, workers compensation covers claims that arise from construction site injureis, other times, it may be possible to bring a civil personal injury lawsuit. Many times, the damages you can recover in a lawsuit significantly exceed those available through filing a worker's compensation claim. Situations where a civil lawsuit may be possible include where owner or general contractor allowed a workplace to be unreasonably dangerous, or where an accident occurred as the result of the negligence of a third party – such where equipment used on the job was defective.

Many complexities exist in determining the best avenue for recovery for the injured and their family members when construction accidents occur.
