Have Counsel On Your Side After A Construction Accident
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 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. For more than 40 years, our team has advocated for the rights of injured workers.

What Types Of Accidents Do Construction Workers Face?
Construction is one of the most dangerous industries for on-the-job injuries. Its high-stakes physical natures means that even the most careful of laborers who follow safety tips can encounter numerous hazards every day. Employers have an obligation to keep construction sites safe. However, far too many choose to disregard safety procedures, leading to severe injuries. Some of the most common accidents that construction workers suffer include:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Slips, trips and falls
- Machinery malfunctions
- Crushing incidents
- Ladder accidents
- Explosions and burns
- Falling debris
In some severe cases, multiple incidents occur and lead to incredibly severe, painful injuries that can last a lifetime. Often, the physical damage from a construction site accident requires medical treatment and rehabilitation that costs tens of thousands of dollars. And, unfortunately, workers’ compensation might not cover all of it.
The Importance Of Establishing Liability
Construction accident lawsuits in California require proof that 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. The gathering and preservation of evidence is crucial.
