A Construction Site Accident is No Laughing Matter

Construction Site Accident

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries in the United States. Each
year, many thousands of individuals are injured and even killed in construction site accidents. Too many serious injuries are caused by a fall or dropped objects. It is also common for workers to trip over a piece of lumber that is left in an unsafe place. Some of the injuries that occur on construction sites
can result in:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Burn injuries
  • Wrongful death

Construction accidents — Who is responsible?

Injury cases are usually highly complex and can involve multiple defendants, multiple plaintiffs,
third-party defendants, claims, and counterclaims. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) identify the primary contractor as responsible for job safety and regulation compliance. But both subcontractors and prime contractors have responsibility for their part of the project, and thus both parties can be sued.

Workers compensation covers lost wages and medical bills in construction accident injuries. However,if defective tools or equipment are factors in the accident, a personal injury claim can be filed against the contractors.

It’s important to have a Californian attorney defend you

Because construction accidents often involve serious injuries and extensive property damage, seeking experienced legal representation should be your first action. It is common for juries to be sympathetic to workers with serious injuries, so receiving a high-dollar compensatory and punitive damages are definitely possible.
