Los Angeles Construction Site Injury Lawyer

Construction workers and employers build our roads, houses, and workplaces and repair and maintain our nation’s physical infrastructure.  Construction includes building new structures, renovations involving additions, alterations, or maintenance, and repair of buildings or engineering projects such as highways or utility systems.

Construction work sites are organizationally complex multi-employer sites and present numerous health an safety challenges.  In 2009, there were 816 fatal on-the-job injuries to construction workers, more than in any other single industry sector and nearly one out of every five work-related deaths in the U.S. that year (19%).

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.

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.

A construction site accident can be extremely serious, and may cause permanent disability, loss of a limb, blindness, head injury, fractured or broken bones, amputation, scarring, and wrongful death.  Often the medical bills will be large, and there may be a long period of disability and lost wages.  Workers’ compensation may pay for some of the medical bills and lost earnings, but worker’s compensation cannot adequately compensate an injured worker for permanent losses and disability arising from a serious construction accident.

When a construction site accident occurs, responsibility for the personal injury can be attributed to a variety of individuals or businesses, including:

  • Owners
  • Contractors and subcontractors
  • Engineers
  • Electricians
  • Scaffolding companies
  • Architects
  • Insurance companies
  • Equipment manufacturers

For example, the general contractor and subcontractors must provide a reasonably safe work environment and manufacturers of construction equipment are responsible for designing and maintaining safe products.  In complex cases, in addition to negligence and workers’ compensation, a construction accident lawyer must consider the legal principles of agency and corporate law.
