Construction Accident Lawyers in Orange County

Construction sites are dangerous places where accidents happen every day. Despite being a heavily regulated industry thousands of construction workers are injured or killed every year. In fact, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that over 400,000 construction workers in the private construction industry were injured and an additional 1,000 workers were killed on the job in 2004.

Causes of Construction Accidents

Construction accidents can occur for any number of reasons:

  • Equipment malfunction
  • Defective heavy machinery
  • Violation of safety regulations
  • Careless construction workers
  • Negligent construction companies

Construction companies should never overlook key safety issues in an effort to meet deadlines and cut costs; but sometimes they do. When any of the above events result in injury, victims may have legal recourse and be able to seek damages against the person or party responsible for the accident. Those responsible can include the construction site owner, architects, general contractor, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and fellow workers.

Liability in Construction Accidents

Liability is usually determined by who has control over the site at the time of the accident and if the accident was preventable. Keep in mind that if the injured worker could have prevented an accident on a construction site by following proper procedures, the worker may not be able to seek compensation for the injury. It is important to seek the assistance of a Southern California construction accident attorney.

Workers' Comp & Construction Accidents

Those injured on construction sites may be eligible to receive Workers Compensation benefits. What many do not realize, however, is that workers' compensation does not provide a recipient with their full salary, but a portion of that salary. For those who are seriously injured on construction sites and are out of work for a long period of time or can't find a job of comparable pay due to their injury, this can be a serious problem

Additionally, under California law, the worker's status as an employee, special employee, or independent contractor has a significant impact on the recovery available to those who are injured on the job. Thus, a thorough understanding of the worker's employment status is crucial to our experienced Orange County construction accident attorneys when making a determination of the remedies available outside of the worker's compensation system.
