Moving Forward from a Construction Accident

Labor laws require construction companies to implement the necessary safety measures on the job site, as well as regularly having their site inspected by safety engineers. However, construction workers are always at greater risk than other employees to get injured in the workplace.

There are many types of accidents that can occur in a construction site, falls being the most frequent. Most of these accidents can be avoided by following the safety requirements as outlined by the law. A construction company that doesn’t follow these measures will be held accountable, whether or not an accident occurs in the workplace.

If you or a loved one suffered an accident due to safety neglect by the company, you can file claims to get compensation for the following:

  • Doctor visits

  • Medicine

  • Hospital stays

  • Surgeries

  • Wages lost due to missed time from work

  • Any benefits lost

  • Reduction of quality of life

  • Pain and suffering

Of course, it has to be proven first that the accident wasn’t your fault. A reliable Los Angeles construction attorney can help you in this matter. To raise your chances of winning some compensation for your case, it’s advisable to get an attorney with extensive experience in construction accident cases. It’s important to consult an attorney immediately while the details of the evidence are fresh, and witnesses are likely available to support your claims.
