Construction Site Accidents Lawyers in Pasadena, CA

Because construction sites are bustling with activity and loaded with large machinery, they are noted for having accidents that involve serious injuries. Thousands of construction workers are injured or killed on the job each year.

Regardless of who is at fault in an accident, construction workers who are injured on the job may seek workers’ compensation under the California Workers’ Compensation Act. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation often does not provide enough benefits to cover the medical costs and lost wages that result from a serious construction site injury.

Employees are generally prohibited from suing their employer for an on-the-job injury. However, there are exceptions that allow an injured worker to pursue both a workers’ compensation claim and a case for damages against a liable party.


If you are injured while working at a construction site, you can file a personal injury lawsuit if your injuries were caused by a third party’s negligent or careless actions. A third party is someone other than your employer whose negligence directly caused your injury. Third parties include subcontractors, architects, engineers, equipment manufacturers, and suppliers.

A successful personal injury lawsuit may result in additional compensation for your lost wages, impairment of earning capacity, medical costs, future medical costs, pain and suffering and loss of consortium.

Slip-And-Fall Accident Attorneys Lawyers in Pasadena, CA

Individuals suffer serious accidents every day as a result of dangerous conditions that cause slip-and-fall accidents. Often, these accidents are the result of poor design or improper maintenance.

Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents can cause serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment and may prevent the injured party from working for an extended period. If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you should not suffer the financial burden of mounting medical bills and lost paychecks.


The personal injury lawyers at DeWitt Algorri & Algorri in Pasadena, California, have extensive experience and a successful track record in cases involving slip-and-fall and other premises liability accidents. We have recovered numerous settlements and verdicts for our clients, often without the need to go to trial. Although these cases are common, they are not easy to prove.

It is vital to contact an experienced California slip-and-fall accident attorney as soon as possible after you are injured. If possible, use a camera or a smartphone to record pictures of the dangerous condition that caused the accident. It is also important to avoid making statements regarding the extent of your injuries. The adrenaline or shock caused by a slip-and-fall accident may cause you to underestimate the severity of your injuries, and these statements can be used against you. It is wise to receive treatment from a doctor who can properly diagnose your injuries.


The law requires that property owners and operators use reasonable care in the management and maintenance of their premises. They must avoid exposing others to an unreasonable risk of harm. Property owners and operators have a duty to reasonably inspect for any unsafe conditions on their property and either repair or give adequate warning of conditions that pose a risk of harm to others.

To be successful in these cases, you must prove that the property owners or those in charge of maintaining the safe conditions of the property were aware or should have been aware of a dangerous condition and failed to act on it. Many times, we fight to obtain the property manager’s surveillance video, janitorial records or other handbooks that show the property managers were not following their own safety procedures.
