Construction Injuries

constructionWorking on a construction sites can be dangerous. The most common injuries are due to lifting; the most serious are usually due to falls. Working on steel beams, scaffolding, and around heavy equipment make construction accidents all too common. In years past, there was also a risk of asbestos exposure in the workplace at construction sites.

Most workers know that when they are injured at a construction site, they have a workers compensation claim. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system of benefits for people with job-related injuries or diseases. Most every worker in California is covered by workers’ compensation. Sometimes we find that a responsible employer has no insurance. When this happens, California law permits us to prosecute the uninsured employer in a separate lawsuit.

But the analysis doesn't stop with workers compensation. With any construction injury, one must also look at whether or not there is a “ third-party” case. A third-party case is a case against any company other than your employer. Typically, it will be against a general contractor, the manufacturer of a product or a premises owner. We have handled hundreds of such claims against contractors, manufacturers and premises defendants.
