Protecting The Rights Of Injured Construction Workers
Construction is a very dangerous industry and can lead to life-changing injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that roughly 10 percent of construction workers suffer an injury every year. While most injuries are preventable with safety equipment and tools, accidents still happen because of numerous subcontractors on job sites and constant pressure to complete a project faster and cheaper.
At the RSnyder Law Firm, PC, our construction accident lawyers provide top-quality legal help to construction workers who suffered injuries on the job. Our team of skilled attorneys has the expertise and dedication to help you pursue the monetary benefits you have the right to receive.
We Take Care Of Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
In the event of an on-the-job accident, construction workers are entitled to pursue financial recovery for their resulting medical bills and time away from work by filing a claim under their employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance.
Injured California workers generally cannot sue their employer directly for a workplace injury if they have Workers’ Comp insurance. In some cases, workers may be able to sue another party for additional compensation if their injuries were the result of negligence. Reasons for a civil claim may include defective equipment or negligent maintenance. Construction accidents can involve any of the following:
- Falls from scaffolding and other high places
- Equipment malfunctions
- Vehicle accidents (even while just getting food or materials)
- Nail gun accidents
- Broken or poorly functioning tools
- Falling materials and tools
- Toxic exposure
