Construction Accidents: Going Beyond Workers' Comp

Construction sites are inherently dangerous places to work. When you load up a site with heavy equipment, sharp tools, ladders, tall structures, and uneven surfaces, the conditions necessary for accidents abound.

But that inherent danger is no excuse for carelessness or negligence. Serious injuries can still be avoided if people are diligent. If you or a loved one has been harmed in a construction accident, it is in your best interest to pursue your rights.

Third-Party Construction Accident Claims

As a personal injury lawyer, I focus on representing construction accident victims in Los Angeles, Santa Monica and throughout Southern California. Construction worker injuries are often caused by liable third parties who are negligent, and I pursue maximum compensation in these claims.

Examples of potential third-party claims include:

  • A contractor or subcontractor takes negligent action that results in an injury, such as dropping tools off of a roof or improperly assembling scaffolding
  • A poorly designed piece of equipment malfunctions, resulting in a serious injury
  • A car accident that occurs in transit between sites results in a catastrophic injury

A third-party personal injury claim can result in financial compensation for your medical bills, your pain and suffering, your lost earnings potential and any property damage you suffered. This is crucial when an accident results in an injury such as a brain injury, spinal cord injury, compound fracture or the loss of a limb.
