Personal Injury Lawyers Assisting with Construction Accidents

Construction accidents are likely to lead to serious injury.  Construction workers are surrounded by dangerous conditions daily and must use extreme caution to ensure the safety of not only themselves, but of those working around them.  However, proper care is not always observed and the results are often dire.  Construction accidents have left victims suffering from serious injuries, including dismemberment, brain injuries from serious falls, burns, broken bones, and a host of other debilitating injuries.  If you were injured in a construction accident, your first line of defense is to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to represent you in your claim.

Do I Have a Claim?

In order to recover compensation for a construction accident, you must be able to show that the accident was the result of someone else’s negligence.  Negligent behavior on a construction site can be exhibited by coworkers, the property owner, the construction company, or even the manufacturer of your equipment and supplies.  Here are some examples of negligent behavior:

  • Failure to follow safety regulations;
  • Failure to provide adequate warnings of known hazards on construction sites;
  • Improperly stored equipment and tools;
  • Malfunctioning equipment and tools;
  • Misuse of heavy construction equipment such as bulldozers and loading trucks;
  • Failure to provide proper supervision.

If you were injured in a construction accident that was not your fault, it is likely that you have a claim.  An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine whether or not you have a legitimate case, and if so, what party or parties you can sue.

What to Do if You Are Injured in a California Construction Accident

If you are injured in a construction accident, you should always make sure that you receive proper treatment of your injuries.  Construction injuries can be serious and often life-threatening.  Be sure to attend all medical appointments and follow all treatment advice recommended by your treating physician.

You should also contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.  Your attorney can help investigate the cause of your accident, gather witnesses, and represent you during litigation.  Be sure to inform your attorney of all of the details that you can remember regarding your accident.
