Construction sites can be extremely dangerous, putting not only those who work on these sites at risk of serious injuries, but those who come on the premises as well. At The Justice Firm, our Los Angeles construction accident lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of those injured in accidents on construction sites and obtaining the full damages you deserve from those responsible.
Not only may workers or others in the environment sustain serious injuries, it is not uncommon for accidents to result in fatalities and lifelong disabilities. One of the most hazardous employment environments of all, employees are at risk every day in performing their job duties. When an accident occurs, it's sometimes difficult to know who is really responsible - site managers, equipment/machinery manufacturers, the property owner, or even engineers or architects. Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys will work diligently to determine all parties who may be responsible, and to hold them accountable.Common Construction Site Injuries in Orange County and Throughout California

We realize the enormous costs of medical treatment, and that even for those who have insurance, the out-of-pocket expense for a victim can be substantial. We work to recover not only medical expenses, but other costs associated with the accident and resulting injuries which may include lost wages present and future, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more. We urge those who have sustained injuries in a construction accident to contact The Justice Firm now.
Falls are common on construction sites, and often result due to defective ladders, flooring holes or collapse, scaffolding, decking that is unsecured, and more. Other common causes of injury include welding or compressed gas accidents, defective or malfunctioning equipment, explosions, and transportation or electrical accidents. Injuries sustained in these types of accidents can leave the victim unable to work for a substantial time period, or even permanently disabled. While you may be eligible for workers' compensation, this insurance will not cover all of the costs related to your injuries. You must seek the guidance and support of a capable and experienced Los Angeles construction accident lawyer.Contact The Justice Firm Now for Unsurpassed Legal Guidance
Construction sites are unfortunately some of the most hazardous locations for workers and those who come onto the property. Considering debris, potentially dangerous power tools, lifts, and electrical boxes or wires that may be exposed in addition to other conditions, adhering to inspection requirements and regulations is critical to the safety of anyone on the premises. Unfortunately, not all who manage these sites participate in ongoing safety awareness programs and other measures to ensure those who work in the construction industry enjoy as safe an environment as possible in this dangerous industry.
