Every year countless construction workers are wounded or killed at construction sites. Construction workers face a greater danger of work-related injury or death than employees in any other United States industry. This is true even though construction companies are required by California labor laws to employ safety engineers and apply several safety measures. Our personal injury lawyers believe that the people who do not obey labor laws should be required to pay for avoidable construction accidents.
Construction accidents include:
- Exploding Gas, Compressors
- Accidents with Machinery including Nail Guns, Fork Lifts, Punch Presses, Elevators, etc.
- Building and Structure Collapses
- Cutting, Logging, Brazing, and Welding Accidents
- Equipment Accidents
- Electricity, Fire and Explosion Accidents
- Ladder and scaffolding Accidents

Complexity Of Construction Cases
Often times construction site accidents can leave its victims with horrible injuries. These types of cases can be complicated to pursue because of the number of potential defendants, including the insurance companies, property owners, general contractors, developers, investors, etc. The good news is that the defendants are usually rich companies, meaning they have deep pockets. That bad side to that is they have very good legal teams hired to avoid any fault.
Sometimes the victims of construction site accidents only file worker’s compensation claims which are usually insufficient as they only compensate for lost wages and medical expenses. Pain and suffering is not covered by Workers’ compensation, so those wanting to recover will have to file another lawsuit.

Our office will investigate whether your accident is caused due to the negligence of your employer, owner of the property, or other parties involved.
