I fell over a brick on a public sidewalk next to a construction site and was hurt. Can I sue the construction company?
Any time you’re injured at, near, or around the construction sites, there are various different entities of people who might be responsible. It could be the people who own the sidewalk, whether that’s the municipality or the building owner. It could also be the people who are working at the site, meaning the contractors doing work there at the time. If they have damaged the sidewalk or created a condition by bringing, for example, trucks over it non-stop or heavy machinery, which is often prone to happen, then these are the things that they would be responsible for, including and with the property owner. As a result, yes, if you were injured on a loose brick or anything outside of a construction site, the owner might be responsible, along with the people, the entities that are working at the construction site themselves.
