Los Angeles Construction Accident Attorney

Get Help from The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus

Each year thousands of construction workers are injured or killed in construction site accidents throughout the United States. Even though construction companies are obligated to inspect each site with safety engineers and provide safety programs, accidents still occur.

Generally, an injured worker cannot sue their employer for injuries arising from work related activities, but if it can be proved that a third party’s negligence caused the injuries, that party can be held liable.

Additionally, in some instances, workers may be injured at a construction site due to their own inadvertence or due to a condition that was no person’s fault. When a worker is injured due to his or her own negligence or that of his or her employer, or due to a condition which was nobody’s fault, that injured party can still receive compensation in most states through Workers' Compensation.

Determining Liability for Job Site Accidents

Sometimes a third party such as an owner, architect, or equipment manufacturer can be blamed for injuries occurring at a construction site if safety provisions are inadequate. General contractor and subcontractors are required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards inherent in the site, to hire careful employees, to coordinate job safety, and to supervise compliance with safety specifications. If these requirements are not adhered to, and a worker is injured as a result, the third party can be held liable.

Manufacturers of construction equipment are responsible for designing and maintaining safe products. If a faulty or defective product causes an injury, your Los Angeles personal injury attorney will help make the manufacturer provide compensation for your injuries. Defective or dangerous products may include scaffolding, cranes, power tools, derricks, hoists, conveyors, woodworking tools, ladders, winches, trucks, graters, scrapers, tractors, bulldozers, forklifts, back hoes, heavy equipment, boilers, pressure vessels, gas detectors and other types of construction equipment.
