Construction Accident Lawyer Los Angeles

Construction Injury Attorney

The Los Angeles construction accident lawyers of Grey Law understand that the building and remodeling of residential and commercial property is continuing to grow in Los Angeles and throughout California.  Unfortunately, with this construction workplace accidents will happen.  Construction sites can be dangerous places to work, visit or even walk by.  There are numerous hazards on a construction site, including heavy machinery, dangerous power tools, scaffolding, ladders, lifts, exposed electrical wires and boxes, construction debris, and falling objects.  Hazards and risks in construction work are often known but hard to control in workplaces that change constantly.

Employers have a responsibility to keep construction sites safe for workers.  This includes implementing safety procedures, maintaining equipment, and supervising workers.  The construction industry must comply with federal laws governing workplace safety and health, primarily the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, which the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforces.  Regulations, specifications, inspection requirements, and job safety programs are all used to prevent construction site accidents and promote safety awareness for everyone involved in a construction project.

Causes of constructions accidents can include, but are not limited to:

  • Defective machinery
  • Defective or unsafe tools
  • Exposed power lines

Negligence

Major construction sites should have site safety managers to oversee the safety components of the work environment and protecting the workers from unsafe weather conditions, dangerous debris on the work site or other hazardous conditions.  Some sites simply don’t have these people managing the site as they should, and in other cases, the negligence of other crew members causes unsafe conditions on the job.  Many different individuals or organizations may work at a construction site, and therefore be liable for injuries that occur, including the construction site owner, architects and engineering professionals, contractors, construction managers, and manufacturers of construction machinery or equipment.

There are many different types of injuries that can occur at a construction site.  Some of those injuries include:
