Construction sites are dangerous places. All manner of injuries can take place; the risks multiplying the more complex the work. Precautions are typically taken – helping prevent injury to workers and their colleagues. Despite these precautions, though, injuries – some minor, some serious – still take place, often caused by negligence, recklessness or intent by a third party. Work place accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Below, we illustrate eight of the most common causes – preventable causes for which you can seek compensation:

Failure to comply with worksite best practices and safety procedures

Violation of regulations and laws, such as those promulgated by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

Intoxication while operating equipment (e.g. alcohol, drugs, etc.)

Inadvertent Neglect

Intentional harm

Employer-employ handbook creation

Contract and lease negotiation

Insurance audits and restructuring

Construction accidents throughout Orange County are an unfortunate, and often devastating, reality. Our personal injury attorneys have dealt with clients who, through no fault of their own, found themselves with permanent and disabling injury – rendering redundant their ability to work in construction again. Common injuries on construction sites include bone fractures and breakage, neck and spinal damage, long-term muscle injuries, lower back pain, long-term psychological distress and disfigurement and/or disablement.

Construction accidents are, then, a significant source of distress – both physical and emotional. Hazard risks are manifold, from falling debris and machinery to slips, falls and through the incompetence of a third-party. It’s worth emphasizing though, that personal injury claims are not held liable by employers. You may be entitled to workplace compensation, if the source of your personal injury is your employer, though you may be entitled to personal injury compensation if the source is a third-party, such as a subcontractor.

We represent clients seeking either workplace or personal injury compensation. Our construction accident lawyers offer a free initial consultation, helping you determine whether you have a case. If you have a case, we will discuss the case further and outline, in detail, the steps we take to guarantee the maximum possible compensation and settlement outcome. Throughout the case, we keep our clients fully informed of the process. Our process is swift, yet methodical.

Construction accidents, such as scaffolding accidents, forklift accidents and tractor accidents, can cause significant bodily injuries, and may result in past and future medical expenses and lost wages.

You may, though, be wondering what level of compensation you’re entitled to. To establish this value, our team need to evaluate not only the cause, nature and status of your injury, but also the ancillary factors that impact on your quality of life, loss of income, ongoing medical expenses and other sources of physical and emotional distress. Our construction accident attorneys comb through and evaluate each source of loss, arriving at a figure that most accurately reflects the nature of your personal injury claim.
