Contractors have a duty to provide a suitable workplace where work can be completed in safe conditions and where workers are not at risk for accident and injury. When a safe workplace is not provided, workers are at risk of injury as a result of a contractor’s intentional, reckless or negligent actions.
Following a worker’s injury, complex issues such as applicable building codes, insurance policies and workers compensation often arise. The attorneys at Pope McGlamry are well versed in Georgia’s building codes and have extensive experience untangling the complexities of insurance policies and indemnification clauses.
