Construction Accidents

Construction Accident Cases

To meet the state's expanding needs, construction sites around Los Angeles are occupied by workers constructing new highways, multifamily homes, office buildings, and other structures. Construction workers are among our country's hardest-working and most dedicated employees, but their rights are frequently disregarded, particularly when tragedy hits. They require an accomplished Los Angeles Construction Injury Attorney on their side when that occurs.


Each year, thousands of workers are injured or killed in construction accidents. In 2021, according to the Department of Industrial Relations, 462 individuals perished while on the job. While no amount of money can ever mitigate the loss of a loved one or severe bodily trauma, filing a personal injury lawsuit in Los Angeles is a challenging process with several deadlines that, if missed, could jeopardize whatever compensation an injured worker or their surviving family members may be entitled to.


Many people who work in the construction and building sector encounter fatal job sites on a regular basis because of the inherent risks of the industry. Not only are catastrophic building and construction site accidents preventable, but they are happening across Los Angeles at an alarming rate and cause serious bodily injury and wrongful death. LA has thousands of active projects, so as time goes on, accidents at construction sites will happen more frequently and with greater severity.

Common Construction Accidents Include:

  • Falls

  • Brain injury

  • Open wounds

  • Dislocations\burns

  • Spinal Cord damage

  • Bone fractures

  • Loss of hearing

  • Vehicular crash

  • Impact from falling objects


It's crucial to remember that most construction firms and equipment manufacturers are sizable corporations with the financial wherewithal to employ legal teams to defend their rights in the event of catastrophes. They will make a concerted effort to reduce all of their costs, including any that they might incur in an accident on a construction site.

Construction Accidents Are Frequently Brought On By:

  • Unstable or damaged scaffolding

  • Electric jolts

  • Faulty or hazardous tools

  • Chemical contact

  • Falling things

  • Inadequate safety equipment

What Should You Do If You've Been Injured In A Construction Accident?

  • Reporting the accident can be your first or second step, depending on your injuries' seriousness.

  • Of course, if you suffer injuries that could end your life, receiving medical help should be your primary priority. You can begin the reporting process right away if your injuries are mild.

  • Facilitate the beginning of a workers' compensation claim. (It makes sense that some employees are reluctant to report an accident owing to concerns about their immigration status or fear of retaliation from their employer, but this documentation is crucial to your case.)

  • If you wait too long to report the accident, you risk losing your benefits. The business has the right to terminate your benefits if you don't submit a report on time.

  • Always request a copy of your report in writing and put it in writing to protect yourself.

  • Most importantly, you need a skilled Los Angeles Construction Accident Injury Attorney on your side if you or a loved one has been hurt or killed while on the job.
