Our attorneys have decades of experience handling a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases. We have the background and the resources to fight for compensation for you after a construction accident.
Helping Construction Accident Victims in San Jose, San Francisco and Sacramento
Workers’ compensation benefits are often the only available remedy for a construction site injury. But when parties other than the employer are at least partially responsible for the accident, our personal injury attorneys pursue a lawsuit against those negligent parties. Such a claim might arise, for example, when a supplier’s delivery vehicle causes injuries on the construction site. A premises liability suit might also be an option, if there was a hazard at the site and the property owner failed to fix it or provide a warning.
Defective products are another common cause of construction site injuries. These include faulty tools, machinery that fails to shut off, and slippery materials that cause slip and falls. Additionally, toxic chemicals that lack adequate warnings can cause illness and injuries. If our investigation reveals that a defective product contributed to your injury, you can pursue recovery from the manufacturer or distributor. Workers’ comp would not bar these lawsuits.
