Who is liable in a Construction Accident?
There are several different parties that could be potentially liable in a construction lawsuit. Different defendants may include:
- Construction site managers
- Building landowners
Workers’ compensation provides construction workers a way to receive compensation for such losses. But, before contacting your workers’ compensation company, contact our construction accident attorneys to determine the different legal routes you can go to obtain compensation since a workers’ compensation claim may not cover all losses.
What Type of Damages Could I Recover from A Construction Accident Lawsuit?
There are different types of damages that one could recover from a construction accident lawsuit. It depends on the different circumstances of the claim. Damages resulting for a construction accident include:

Types of Accidents in a Construction Site
The most common types of construction accidents include:
- Falling from a high point e.g., from a crane or scaffolding
- Excessive noise
- Struck by falling objects
- Vehicle accidents
- Getting caught in equipment
- Defective and/or dangerous machinery
- Exposure to heat, e.g., when welding
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act, construction site injuries are at an all-time high, and numbers are on the rise every year. You may be entitled to compensation to pay for medical bills, ongoing care, and loss of income.
Should I Hire a Los Angeles Attorney After a Construction Accident?
Insurance companies and attorneys for the defendant will try to take advantage of you, and use everything you say against you while filing such a claim. An experienced attorney is necessary when filing such a claim.
But rather than opting for a big law firm that doesn’t specialize in injury-related cases, focus your search on firms whose entire specialty is construction and personal injury cases. For example, a big law firm will not give you the individual attention your claim needs. You also need an attorney who is located within your city and is knowledgeable about construction employment laws.
A construction accident could have significant effects on your life. It can cause both physical and psychological damage. Our attorneys can guide you through the entire process, from launching a case to litigating your behalf if your case ends up in court. Our construction lawyers have solid experience in construction accident litigation. We are well familiar with going to trial, preparing for your case, and anticipating what the other side will do. While you may be keen to achieve a without-trial settlement, a specialist attorney that has experience of going to trial can support you from start to finish.
When Can I Sue After a Construction Accident?
Construction accidents fall under the legal theory of negligence, which holds the defendant liable for any negligence acts that may have occurred. The plaintiff asserts that the defendant did not act with reasonable care in this specific situation. Through a negligence claim, plaintiff will be able to recover damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, etc. In order to succeed through a claim of negligence, your attorney needs to gather strong evidence to show liability for the other side.
Construction cases could be a bit complicated and complex to navigate through since several parties are involved for a specific construction site. It also gets even more complicated when workers’ compensation is involved. That is why it is very important to hire an attorney who can determine your rights and the different legal options you can take.
What Do Our Construction Attorneys Do?
- Gather information from you about what happened, the type of accident you had, when, what injuries you sustained, and check if there were any witnesses to your accident.
- Collect documentation related to your claims, such as medical records, any photographs of your injuries, insurance policy information, and medical bills
- Get down to the detail by investigating your accident and seek out further evidence, such as CCTV images, police reports, security camera footage, and so on.
- Start to negotiate with the other side’s attorneys for a fair compensation settlement that you’re entitled to as a result of your accident. If the negotiations are not successful, we’ll prepare to go to trial.
- We provide additional support with accident experts that will take a look at the claim and accident, and better determine liability based on the evidence. We have connections with top personal injury experts in Los Angeles.
