Types of Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites are inherently dangerous workplaces, and there are many deaths each year according to the California Fatal Occupational Injuries Report. Even with safety protocols, there is still the risk of injury. Some of the most common types of accidents include:

  • Falls. Falls on construction sites result from inadequate safety measures, unprotected sides or holes, improperly constructed working or walking surfaces, and improper ladder or scaffolding usage.
  • Struck by objects. Swinging or falling objects may hit workers or bystanders as a result of loose or shifting materials and equipment malfunctions.
  • Electrocutions. There are numerous electrocution risks on construction sites, including exposed wires and wet conditions. Most accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools and extension cords.
  • Caught in/between. Construction workers may get caught in or between vehicles, heavy machinery, and tools. There is also the risk of excavation collapses.

No matter what type of accident you have been involved in on your job site, our attorney can evaluate your situation, determine who to hold accountable, and build a case that proves you are owed compensation for your losses.

Who Is Responsible for a Construction Site Accident?

Several parties could potentially be responsible for a construction site accident. To determine the at-fault party, your lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation. It is important to remember that evidence fades with time, so the sooner you retain a lawyer, the better chance you will have at building a strong claim.

When investigating the accident, your lawyer will look at the property owner, other contractors, subcontractors, employees, and the tools and equipment manufacturers. In California, the property owner can be responsible if they fail to properly maintain or care for the property. A worker could be at fault if they were unable to abide by safety protocols or were grossly negligent. A manufacturer can be held accountable if a faulty piece of equipment or machinery is blamed for the accident.

No matter who the negligent party is, your lawyer will thoroughly explain why they should be held accountable for your injuries and losses.

The Benefits of Working With an Orange County Attorney

There are many benefits to having a construction site attorney by your side. To start, they will ensure you understand your legal rights and options, as well as any state laws that apply to your claim.

If you choose to proceed with a claim, your lawyer will start with a comprehensive investigation. They will collect relevant documentation, photographs, video surveillance footage, witness statements, medical records, lost wage statements, and more. If needed, they may consult an outside expert, like an accident reconstructionist or economist, to help determine the best way to present your case.

Once your lawyer has all of the evidence needed to support your claim, they will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf. Insurance companies are notorious for finding ways to reduce settlement offers, so negotiations may be challenging.

In the event negotiations do not lead to a fair settlement offer, your attorney can explain the litigation process and, if you choose to proceed, help you file a lawsuit. While doing so will extend the life of your legal matter, it may be the only way to obtain the compensation you need to get your life back in order.
