Every year, thousands of dedicated construction workers are severely injured or killed on the job site in tragic accidents. Sadly, many of these devastating accidents could have been avoided if not for the irresponsible actions of others. While an injured construction worker can apply for workers’ compensation, these benefits often aren’t enough to cover the all the costs associated with the accident.
Our law firm has a clear understanding of the state and federal laws that protect injured construction workers, but we also realize every case is different and every client has different needs. Whether you need help holding a negligent third party accountable for your injuries or you’re interested in pursuing a claim against a manufacturer because you were hurt by a defective piece of equipment, our law firm can help.
How can a San Diego construction accident attorney help me?
Once you’ve sustained a work injury on a construction site, you may have multiple options to recover the compensation you’re entitled to, including:
- Workers’ Compensation
- Personal Injury Lawsuit
- Product Liability Lawsuit
- Wrongful Death Lawsuit, if you lost a loved one in a fatal accident
Maybe you were hurt on the job site and need help getting workers’ compensation benefits. It could be that you were badly injured due to the negligent actions of a third party, such as a subcontractor, and need to file a personal injury lawsuit. You may have been hurt using defective equipment or a loved one may have died in a fatal construction accident.
Whether your workplace injury was the result of negligence, a faulty product, or because certain policies and procedures weren’t followed, it’s important to remember that you have rights. San Diego construction accident attorney Robert A. McLaughlin can protect those rights and help you get the compensation you need and deserve.
What are the common causes of construction accidents?
Construction job sites are some of the most dangerous places to work in the world, which explains why so many dedicated workers are injured and killed every year in serious accidents. Some common examples of how construction accidents are caused include:
- Falls from height
- Falling debris
- Slip and fall accidents
- Improper use of tools
- Machinery accidents
- Getting caught between pieces of equipment
- Fires, burns, and explosions
- Transportation accidents
- Crane accidents
- Overexertion/heat stroke
- Doing a repetitive motion
- Trench and building collapses
No matter what type of circumstances caused you to get injured, contact our law firm immediately so we can get started on your case right away. The longer you wait to take action, the more you run the risk of losing out on the compensation you’re entitled to.
What damages can I recover for my construction accident?
After being involved in a construction accident, you are entitled to recover compensation for your accident-related damages. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs. Remember, you can’t sue your employer for a work accident, but if your injury involved a third party such as a property owner or subcontractor, you can file a personal injury claim against that business. Such a third-party claim can cover damages not covered by workers’ comp, such as pain and suffering.
We can go over the details of your accident and fight for the maximum compensation to cover all your damages.
