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.

At our East Los Angeles office our Construction Accident Attorneys are strong advocates for construction accident victims. Our law firm has experience in fighting for the rights and interests of people who were severely injured in construction accidents. If you or your loved one was injured in a construction accident, you need to take immediate action. For free legal guidance, please call us today at 323-838-1444. We will review your case, explain your rights and your options to you, and help you take action.

The Most Common Types of Construction Accidents

Modern construction sites are deeply complex. Accidents can come in a wide range of different forms, and they involve many different parties. Indeed, at most major construction sites, there are many different things going on at the same time. There may be potentially dangerous equipment or hazardous materials being used concurrently all around the site. If proper safety precautions are not taken by construction companies and worksite managers, severe injuries can occur. For reference, some of the most common construction accidents include:

  • Crane accidents;
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Fall accidents;
  • People being struck by falling objects;
  • Compressed gas accidents;
  • Defective and dangerous machinery accidents;
  • Mechanical risks due to machinery components;
  • Slip, trip and fall accidents;
  • Trenching and excavation accidents;
  • Electrocutions;
  • Chemical exposures;
  • Welding accidents;

Compensation claims

If you were injured in a construction accident, and you are considering bringing a workers’ compensation claim, it is crucial that you have a basic understanding of the process. In these cases, fault is not a material issue. You do not need to prove that your employer — or any other party — did anything improper or reckless to cause the construction accident. Instead, you need to be ready to prove the precise extent of your injuries and your damages. Financial compensation should be made available for:

  • Medical bills
  • Permanent impairment  
  • Lost wages
