Construction sites are hazardous places at the best of times. They are places where workers, as well as visitors to the construction site, need to remain vigilant. Despite the implicit dangers that come with such a treacherous environment, many injuries are in fact avoidable. When culpability falls on the shoulders of employers, they are obligated to provide compensation. Hazards come in many forms – from falling debris and machinery, to slips and falls. Many of these construction accidents result in death.

Construction Accident Attorneys - Irvine
Our construction accident attorneys are here to help you recover compensation. Our team have helped clients right through Orange County – from Irvine and Anaheim, right through to Santa Ana and Huntington Beach. You may be entitled to damages caused by medical injury, loss of employment income, loss of quality of life, rehabilitation and psychological distress. We evaluate your claim to determine the best, most approximate compensation you’re entitled to – both from actual and potential losses of income.
We take worker’s compensation very seriously. Workplace injuries are preventable, often highly preventable. Employers are obligated to ensure that their work environment is as safe as could be – void of potential sources of personal injury. Workplace compensation and personal injury compensation are not the same, though you may be entitled to both. Workplace compensation is sourced from your employer, whereas personal injury compensation can be claimed if caused by a third party, such as a subcontractor.
Our construction accident attorneys can help you determine what compensation you’re entitled to. Our duty is to maximize your potential compensation, charting a legal path to settlement. Where necessary, we establish culpability on the part of employers, as well as for product liability and subcontractors. No legal stone is left unturned, ignored or understated. Our process is both methodical and precise. Our team keep our clients fully informed of the process from our initial free consultation, right through to settlement.
If you are unsure whether you may have a case, talk to one of our personal injury attorneys today. A member of our team will get back to you very shortly to discuss your case. This initial consultation is entirely free. We want our clients to be both comfortable and informed about the legal path that we recommend.
