Construction site accidents in California are particularly complicated. The remedies available to the injured party will vary depending on their status on the work site. An injured worker will have the remedy of workers’ compensation and the potential remedy of third-party liability against another contractor if the injury producing event was caused by someone other than their employer or co-worker. If the injured party is a non-worker bystander, their remedy will be a liability case against the at-fault contractor.
It is important to contact the lawyers at Padilla Law Group, LLP, an experienced, complex construction site law firm, as soon as possible after the accident. The gathering and preservation of evidence is crucial.
Construction accident lawsuits in California require proof the at-fault contractor affirmatively contributed to the happening of the event. This can be by doing something or by failing to take a precaution required by working conditions.
If you can establish the liability of the third-party contractor, the injured worker would be entitled to past and future general damages, including pain, suffering, emotional distress, loss of quality of life and physical impairment.
