Construction Accident

Who can file a Construction Accident claim in Long Beach?

Construction sites are dangerous places to be. Accidents in the construction industry can and do occur frequently from concealed or unmarked hazardous areas, including nails and screws, tall unsecured drop-offs, and raw sharp wood, among others. Major construction accidents or accidents involving construction equipment can endanger both workers and innocent bystanders on construction sites. Our expert work injury lawyers at the Gaylord & Nantais Law Firm have represented numerous construction accident-injured workers in their compensation claims.

Since at least 2001/02, Falls from height, being struck by a moving vehicle, or flying or falling object have been the three leading causes of fatal injury. These account for more than half of all fatal injuries each year.

The construction sector is well-known for including some of the most dangerous types of jobs. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, construction accidents are responsible for one out of five workplace fatalities (OSHA).

According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, burns and scarring are two of the most prevalent construction accident injuries owing to a high risk of fires and explosions on building sites. Work-related hearing loss is higher overall due to excessive noise exposure in the construction industry.

Are you eligible for a construction accident claim in Long Beach?

Despite the necessity of construction work, it is also dangerous for workers. Construction accidents and equipment-related injuries are common due to the prevalence of moving parts and heavy machinery. If you have sustained a work-related injury, you may be eligible for benefits designed to cover your medical expenses and other related costs. Under California law, employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage to protect their employees.

Workers who are injured will need medical treatment, and their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance got built with their health in mind. There are numerous advantages to Workers’ Compensation laws, such as :

  • Ability to focus on recovery
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Prevents lawsuits
  • Financial benefits
  • Disability benefits
  • Lifetime medical care

It’s practically impossible for someone to afford their living expenditures if they aren’t working. Further, medical care in America is costly. Workers’ compensation benefits will help you with the funds you require to keep up with your bills, including any necessary medical treatment, medicines, surgery, prosthetic limbs, and physical therapy.

Our attorneys at Gaylord & Nantais are among the top Long Beach workers’ compensation attorneys, having over 40+ years of expertise helping clients maximize the value associated with workers’ compensation claims.

FAQs

Workers' Comp Law Firm

Your financial recovery against your employer may be impacted by workers’ compensation laws, but keep in mind that third-party contractors, property owners, and equipment manufacturers may also be legally responsible for your injuries. Workers’ compensation laws will have no bearing on your recovery from those parties. However, in the majority of states, you will be required to repay the worker’s compensation carrier from your recovery from third parties.

Depending on the property owner’s control over the work and the property when the injury occurred, he or she may be liable for some or all of your injuries.

The property owner, general contractor, and subcontractors are responsible for construction site safety. Depending on the circumstances, each party’s responsibility will vary.

In the event that you are injured in a workplace accident, the responsible party may not be readily identifiable. You do have recourse if your injury was the result of negligent safety protocols, defective equipment, or actions by customers or other third parties.

If someone other than your employer caused your injury, then that party can be liable for your injury. A third party can be:

  • A customer

  • The manufacturer of faulty equipment

  • An outside subcontractor

Third-party lawsuits require detailed legal experience to ensure the best outcome for you.
