Construction Site Accidents

Construction Accident Lawyers

Construction Construction is a dangerous business, and many construction workers are seriously injured or killed while simply doing their jobs on construction sites. Electrical accidents and electrocution, excavation collapses, and nail gun injuries result in serious injuries and deaths all too often.

When a construction worker is injured on the job in California, he or she often cannot make a claim against the employer for work related injuries, as those must be handled in a workers’ compensation claim under the California Workers’ Compensation Act. Regardless of which state you live in, a similar restriction may be applicable to your situation.

There are certain circumstances, however, in which an injured construction worker may recover damages: when another party has been negligent, careless, or reckless in terms of safety precautions taken on a construction site.
