OSHA routinely cites the construction industry as one of the most dangerous and deadly workplaces. Regulatory compliance and safety policies can reduce the associated risks, but these measures do not completely remove the risk. One act of carelessness can change someone’s life forever.
The team at DiMarco Araujo Montevideo has been representing injured construction workers and their families since 1979. We know what injured workers face, and we’re prepared to defend your rights inside and outside the courtroom.
Construction sites carry an inherent level of risk, but many accidents are completely avoidable. A dirty rag left out could present a fire hazard. Improperly maintained machines and equipment might malfunction, causing explosions, lost limbs, or other traumas. A dropped hammer from any height can result in a brain injury. Construction injuries include overuse injuries from daily activities on the job as well as severe injuries including falls from heights, electrocutions, burns, impalement, and welding injuries.
Construction sites are typically chaotic, with many individuals performing different, but interconnected roles. The potential for accidents and injuries increases with each new worker and piece of equipment. After any construction accident, injured workers, visitors, and passersby have the right to pursue fair compensation through an insurance claim and/or a personal injury lawsuit.
Regardless of fault, injured workers have the right to workers’ compensation benefits in the state of California. Our firm helps injured construction workers with every aspect of a construction incident claim. We can help you understand the claims process so you can file your claim on your own. If you run into problems with your employer or the insurance company, our attorneys will help you expedite the claims process and secure fair compensation to cover associated costs.
In many cases, we may need to take an injury case further than filing an insurance claim. An injured worker may also have a valid personal injury claim against the company, a product manufacturer, or a third party. Construction injury lawsuits go above and beyond insurance benefits to cover the injury expenses associated with an act of negligence. Filing an additional claim may offer more compensation for your pain and suffering than a workers’ compensation claim alone will provide.
In addition to site workers, visitors and individuals near the location may also suffer injuries. Gas leaks, asbestos exposure, falling objects, and other incidents may affect individuals outside of the construction company. If these individuals are onsite working for a different company, they may have access to workers’ compensation benefits as well as the ability to file a lawsuit against the liable party. Bystanders may not have access to workers’ compensation, but they do have the right to file a lawsuit based on negligence. Our firm handles all construction injury cases.
