Construction Accidents

San Francisco Construction Accident Attorney

The Dangers of California Construction Sites

Some of the most serious workplace accidents in America occur at construction sites due to the frequency of incidents such as dangerous and deadly equipment failures, falls, exposure to dangerous chemicals, electrocution, fires and others.

In many cases, the responsibility for construction accidents can be assigned to the negligence of either:

  • The construction company, or
  • A third party such as an equipment manufacturer

The victim may be eligible to receive compensation above and beyond that which workers compensation benefits are structured to provide. In any case, victims of construction accidents should immediately seek representation from a talented and proven legal team to protect their rights and help them pursue fair compensation.

The Severity of Workplace Injuries

It is no secret that construction workers share some of the highest risks of injury among all professions in America, and San Francisco is no different. In many cases, injured construction workers miss work due to such injuries as broken bones, head or brain injuries, lost appendages and limbs, or tragic fatal injuries. In the best-case scenario, victims of construction accidents may receive workers compensation benefits to help cover medical costs associated with recovery as well as some payment for those who are unable to work.

Unfortunately, there is a multitude of expenses that may not be covered by filing a workers compensation claim, but victims do have other options to seek appropriate settlements. Personal injury law exists to provide victims of incidents like construction accidents with an alternative means of seeking that compensation for damages not covered by existing benefits.
