I was injured off of the official construction site. Can I still sue for compensation?
The rules regarding the definition of the workplace include any area that is used for work purposes. This includes vehicles used for transport to or from work, among other instances when a construction worker is injured at work while off-site. As long as that worker was injured because of their employer’s negligence, any space used for work purposes may be considered a part of the workplace.
