Although a wide range of federal and state regulations have been implemented to ensure that construction sites are safe, construction accidents remain far too common in California and throughout the United States. Sadly, thousands of construction workers and innocent passersby are injured and killed in accidents every year.
Construction accidents have the potential to lead to devastating, life-altering injuries. Victims need to be able to access the maximum available compensation so that they pay their medical bills and provide financial support for their family. Unfortunately, getting compensation from private insurance companies or through the state’s workers’ compensation program can be challenging.
