Construction Accident Attorneys in Fresno

Who Is Liable for a Construction Site Accident?

The construction industry sees some of the highest rates of work-related injuries. This is partially due to the inherently dangerous nature of construction and construction sites. In many cases, however, accidents are entirely avoidable. When construction companies, supervisors, and workers fail to follow OSHA regulations and other safety standards, the consequences can be devastating.

At Torem & Associates, we assist injured construction workers and their families with complex construction accident claims. We conduct careful, meticulous investigations in order to determine exactly who is liable for your injuries or the death of your loved one. Once we have uncovered the responsible parties, we fight for the maximum compensation you are owed for your losses.

If you were injured or your loved one was killed on a construction site, contact the Fresno construction accident attorneys at Torem & Associates for a free consultation.

How Construction Accidents Occur

As previously mentioned, construction sites are fundamentally dangerous places. Workers are required to climb scaffolding, use ladders, and operate heavy machinery. There are many ways in which accidents can happen; most often, these accidents are the result of failing to follow safety rules. When this is the case, our firm works hard to hold the negligent parties liable.

Some of the most common causes of construction accidents include:

  • Falls from ladders and scaffolding
  • Being hit by falling objects
  • Improper use of tools/equipment
  • Lack of adequate supervision
  • Insufficient training
  • Poorly maintained equipment/machinery
  • Defective or faulty tools and equipment
  • Failure to follow OSHA regulations
  • Electrocution due to exposed wiring
  • Defective safety equipment/materials

This list is not exhaustive; there are many other types of construction accidents and many other ways in which they can occur. Our Fresno construction accident lawyers look at all possible factors leading up to an accident in order to help our clients fight for the justice and fair recovery they deserve.

Speak to an Attorney about Your Case Today

Like all types of workplace accidents, construction accidents are usually very complicated. Depending on the unique circumstances of your situation, there may be multiple liable parties. Often, the liable insurance company will reject your rightful claim or attempt to appease you with a low settlement. It is important that you do not speak to the other party’s insurance adjustor and do not agree to accept any settlement they offer.

Instead, contact an attorney at our firm for a free consultation. We can help you understand all of your legal rights and options and build a strong case on your behalf. We offer our services on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no upfront cost for you and if we don’t win your case, you don’t pay.
