These common causes of construction accidents and injuries are referred to as the Fatal Four. These causes are responsible for nearly 60% of worker fatalities in the construction industry.

Further, while not on the list of four, work zone highway accidents are also very common. There are many safety campaigns to address this recurring issue. In addition to criminal charges, when a driver hits a worker, there will usually be a civil claim also.

Do Construction Accidents Cause Serious Injuries Often?

In some circumstances, the true effects of an accident might take some time to reveal themselves. Some injuries get progressively worse as days and even weeks pass. What might appear minor while on the job might in fact be a serious, possibly life-long injury. Occasionally adrenaline masks injuries or they simply take a while to develop.

In other situations, a routine injury may be aggravated or worsen throughout the course of treatment. For example, an infection developing during or after surgery, or a greater muscle tear occurring during rehabilitation. Injured employees are protected in these events by the laws of California but they are required to actively seek relief from their injuries. Consulting with a personal injury lawyer early can help protect your legal rights and enable you to recover your damages.

Should You Request a Complimentary Construction Accident Case Consultation?

Under California legislation, an injured worker has the right to file and receive workers compensation benefits for injuries on the job.

Along with workers' compensation benefits, an injured construction worker may also have a third-party negligence case. The case could be against a contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or other individual or business. There can be a third-party claim as long as the at fault party is not the employer or colleague of the injured or deceased individual. Typically, these kinds of cases include either general negligence in preserving safe working conditions, or products liability for negligently maintained or manufactured equipment or vehicles.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of a construction accident, an accident lawyer needs to be consulted as promptly as possible to assess your case and to protect your rights. Your Alhambra construction accident attorney will examine the cause of the accident, the extent of injuries and the accountable parties.

If the facts of your construction accident case do not require a third-party negligence claim, you or your loved ones still have a right to receive workers' compensation benefits.
