Construction sites are notoriously dangerous places. For this reason, the law protects both workers who traverse and work there, and firefighters who are there for a job. The property owner and contractors working on a site have a responsibility to maintain the site in a safe condition — including both the work areas and the passageways. Thus, if a firefighter responds to a job at a construction site and is injured, he or she may be entitled to compensation if the owner and contractors violates their duty.
