Attorneys Seek Justice for Construction Site Accident Victims
Skilled lawyers help injured construction workers in area recover compensation
Construction sites are inherently dangerous workplaces. In fact, one out of five worker deaths in the United States involves construction workers. Every ladder, walkway, platform or scaffold has the potential to seriously injure a worker at the site. If you have been injured on a construction site, the experienced injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Friedberg & Bunge will seek the compensation and justice you deserve for the harm you have suffered. We represent workers injured on sites in San Diego and throughout California and the US Virgin Islands so they can get the compensation they deserve.
we handle a range of construction injury claims
Nearly every item, tool or machine on a construction site is capable of causing injury, especially when mandated safety procedures are not followed by site owners. Workers may suffer injuries caused by:
- Falls from ladders, scaffolds or platforms
- Falling equipment such as hammers, saws, and other construction tools
- Burns and electrocution
- Exposure to dangerous materials, including toxic chemicals
The most common causes of worksite deaths are falls, falls from ladders, falling and moving objects, electrocutions, and workers getting caught or stuck in between surfaces. Our attorneys represent injured workers and their families regardless of the cause of the accident.
Those who have been hurt on construction sites will have different legal rights and remedies depending on the cause of their injury. Depending on who is responsible for the actions or conditions that caused your injury, our attorneys will either be able bring a third-party claim against those responsible for your injuries.
we represent injured workers with third-party claims for compensation
While the law prevents workers from suing their own employers, it does not prevent lawsuits against other people or companies on a construction site. Workers are frequently able to bring negligence claims against other contractors, subcontractors and property owners for injuries sustained on a construction site. Our lawyers will work with you to decide whether bringing a negligence claim against a third party is an option in your case.
Counselors help families after fatal construction accidents
When a construction accident is fatal, our attorneys can help the victim's family get justice. Families might be entitled to workers' compensation death benefits that include reimbursement for final expenses and wage replacement. If the accident was tied to a third party's negligence (as opposed to the victim or employer), we will assist your family in bringing a wrongful death lawsuit that seeks compensation for a range of losses that are not included under workers' compensation.
