Construction Accidents

California has a strong and well established construction industry. Construction is also potentially a hazardous profession and every year thousands of California cities report numerous injuries and deaths in job-related accidents. Many construction site injuries are preventable. However, despite the myriad of federal, state, and local regulations, inspection requirements and industry standards, serious or even life-threatening injuries still occur.

Some of the most common causes of construction site injuries include scaffolding failures, electrocution, falling materials, lifting and repetitive motions, hazardous material spills or exposure or malfunction of heavy equipment, nail guns, welding or cutting devices.

When an injury does occur, the most important first step is to get proper medical attention immediately. The second step is to contact an experienced construction accident attorney.

Construction site accidents present a large variety of potentially complex legal issues that require the skill of an experienced accident attorney to analyze. These issues include compliance with occupational safety and health regulations, proper supervision, engineering standards, contractual indemnity, Negligence and premises liability. There are a number of potential claims that may be pursued in a construction accident case and workers compensation insurance is often not the only available remedy.

There are several parties which may be liable for a construction site injury including the site owner, engineering professionals, contractors and subcontractors, manufacturers, construction managers, and material or equipment suppliers. Liability issues can be complex and you should discuss the details of the accident with an attorney as soon as possible. It is also important to note that construction site injury claims are subject to a Statutes Of Limitations which limits the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit.
