Construction Accident Attorneys in California

Who Is Responsible for a Construction Accident?

In 2016, there were 4,693 worker fatalities reported. Of those fatalities, 21.1% (991) were construction site deaths. In other words, one in every five workers killed on the job was on a construction site.

No matter how careful a worker may be on a construction job site, oversights on the part of others can lead to serious injuries that may have been easily prevented. Depending on whether an accident occurs because of faulty equipment, unsafe conditions, negligence of a co-worker or supervisor, or other dangers, there may be a number of responsible parties.

These can include:

  • Employers
  • Manufacturers of faulty equipment
  • Co-workers

Common Construction Site Injuries

Construction sites are inherently dangerous, due in part to the type of equipment workers are required to use. Construction job sites also tend to have scaffolding, heavy machinery, and other dangerous items. Because of this, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has regulations regarding construction sites and workers. Unfortunately, these regulations are not always followed and, even when they are, accidents can still occur.

The four most common construction injuries are:

  • Trips, Slips, or Falls – Including falling from a scaffold or rooftops
  • Electrocution – Exposed wiring is often prevalent at a construction site
  • Being Struck By An Object – Falling tools, beams, boards, etc.
  • Caught In Between Two Objects – Being pinned between machinery, etc.

If you were involved in a construction accident or your loved one died as the result of any type of construction-related injury, Torem & Associates can help you fight for justice and a fair recovery.

A Word about Workers’ Compensation

Under most circumstances, an individual/worker that is injured at a construction site can only sue his employer directly under the workers’ compensation laws of the state of California. However, in some instances where someone other than the workers’ employer is negligent and creates the danger at the construction site, the injured employee may sue the subcontractor or entity that caused their injuries and obtain compensation from them separate and apart from the workers’ compensation benefits obtained from their own employer.

This is important because, in very serious injury/catastrophic injury cases, the injured worker does not get any money for his “pain and suffering” because the workers’ compensation system does not take into account pain and suffering. If an injured worker is able to sue the third party responsible for the dangerous condition, the injured worker may then be compensated for his pain and suffering in addition to his loss of income and medical damages.
