Construction is one of the most hazardous industries in America, with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimating that roughly one in ten construction workers suffer an injury every year. While many of the dangers of construction are mitigated through the proper use of specialized safety equipment, accidents still happen often due to the involvement of numerous subcontractors on jobsites and constant pressure to complete a project in a timely manner.

Although construction work is inherently dangerous, no worker should ever expect to suffer an injury. In the event of an on-the-job accident, construction workers are entitled to pursue financial recovery for their resulting medical bills and time away from work by filing a claim under their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. While injured workers generally cannot sue their employer for a workplace injury if they have workers’ comp insurance, workers may be able to sue a third party for additional compensation if it can be proven that their injuries were caused by some sort of negligence, such as a defectively designed or manufactured piece of equipment.
Construction accidents can involve any of the following:
With our assistance, you may be able to recover compensation for your resulting medical expenses, lost wages, permanent disability, and vocational rehabilitation. Likewise, if your loved one has lost their life in a construction accident, an additional wrongful death claim may be filed in pursuit of compensation for funeral costs, lost future income, and more. Our firm’s powerful attorneys can help determine the most appropriate course of legal action to pursue and craft a case in pursuit of maximum financial recovery on your behalf.
The consequences of a construction accident can be devastating, causing injuries ranging from spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injury to amputations and more. Unfortunately, many injured workers are left to deal with these life-altering injuries on their own due to the overwhelming complexity of California’s workers’ comp system. From filing the necessary paperwork to negotiating with your employer’s insurance company, our Orange County workers’ comp lawyers can handle the legal heavy lifting and ensure your rights are guarded. Most importantly, we will never make more than you do, and we will not charge you a cent for our services unless we are successful on your behalf.
