San Diego Construction Accident Lawyers

San Diego Construction Accident Lawyers

According to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), construction is one of the most dangerous industries in the country, representing 16 percent of total workplace fatalities. California had a fairly low fatality rate compared to other states, but exceeded the national rate for injuries in the construction field that were not fatal (file:///C:/Users/Terry/Downloads/California%20Construction%20Fatalities%20Cost%20Billions.pdf). When someone is injured in a construction accident, or when a loved one dies as a result of those injuries, the results can be devastating.

After a Construction Accident

There are many different types of accidents that can occur on a construction site, but some of the most common include:

•Lifting items that are too heavy
•Electrocution
•Falls
•Defective equipment or machinery
•Falling objects

In many cases, the accident may cause permanent disability and even death, which affects not only the worker who was injured, but their entire family. The injured person may not only be dealing with constant pain, but stress due to financial pressures as well, making it more difficult to heal. If the injury is permanent and life-altering, such as a traumatic brain injury, amputation or paralyzation, there may be a need for specialist treatment, long-term medication, nursing care or physical therapy. For very severe injuries, long-term residential care in a rehabilitation center or nursing home may be necessary. This can put a significant financial burden on both the injured person and there family, which is why anyone injured in a construction accident should contact a qualified attorney immediately to learn what rights they may have.

Third-Party Claims

In most cases, workers’ compensation insurance covers the medical costs for an employee who is injured on the job. However, in some cases, the employer may not be responsible as there may be a third party involved. An employer must be sure their worksite is safe, but in construction, subcontractors may sacrifice safety in order to get a job done more quickly. In addition, there are often many different contractors working on one job site, either providing equipment or personnel. This could lead to a third-party being responsible for a workplace injury. For example, equipment owned by a leasing agency may have a defect that causes an injury to an employee from another company. This would make the leasing company responsible for those injuries. Unfortunately, third-party workers’ compensation claims are the most difficult to collect. Therefore, hiring a qualified, knowledgeable attorney is the best way to be sure a third-party claim is resolved to the benefit of the injured party.

Chronic Medical Conditions

In some cases, people who work in the construction industry develop debilitating chronic medical conditions. Arthritis, knee injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome are all examples of medical conditions that can develop in those who spend many years working in construction. This can cause constant, daily pain that can grow worse over time. In some cases, there may be no treatment to resolve the pain, and the injured person could eventually have to stop working as they may be too disabled with pain to work. For those suffering with chronic pain due to medical conditions that may have been caused by their work in the construction industry, contacting an experienced construction injury attorney can lead to payment for those injuries as well as for medical treatments that could improve the pain.

Wrongful Death

If a loved one has died from injuries they received due to a construction accident, a wrongful death claim may be in order. Equipment failures, the negligence of others or third-party factors may be involved when someone is injured in a construction accident and does not survive the injury. The person who died may have been the main financial support for the household, which means survivors may be facing significant financial stress. Contacting an attorney who understands the needs of those left behind after a sudden, unexpected death is the best way to relieve the financial pressure and begin the steps toward healing from the loss of the loved one.
