Construction Accident

The real estate industry is quickly growing in Los Angeles, and thus many workers get employed in construction sites these days. While workers get safety accessories for working on a construction site, injuries still happen due to the accidents. In most cases, accidents in construction sites occur due to the failure of equipment.

According to a report revealed by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), more than 100,000 people get injured while working at a construction site in the United States every year. On the other hand, around 1000 death cases due to fatal injury at the construction site have been reported every year. At ABDI and Associates, we offer professional legal consultancy to construction workers who suffer injuries at construction sites.

Our experienced and proficient Los Angeles construction accident lawyer provides legal guidance to the injured construction workers. We can help you to get the right compensation from the employers. At the same time, we challenge insurance companies legally if they deny benefits to a workplace injury victim.

Why Do You Need a Construction Accident Lawyer?

It would help if you had a professional construction injury lawyer when you have succumbed to an injury at the workplace. In the USA, workplace injuries are common, and employers take various measures to prevent such injuries. However, preventative steps cannot, unfortunately, reduce the cases of workplace injury to zero. In construction sites, injuries commonly happen due to falling objects, equipment malfunctioning, lack of awareness, and many other reasons.

Construction workers may succumb to major or minor injuries due to their fault. Sometimes, they get injured due to the fault of other workers. Irrespective of how the accident has occurred, it is essential to render proper medical treatment and care to the injured person. The employer is liable to give compensation to the injured workers for their medical expenses. But, it does not happen smoothly, and thus you need a professional lawyer to resolve the compensation dispute.

What leads to disputes in worker injury claims? Can undocumented construction workers claim compensation from the employer? Find the answers below.

  • Employer Denies Compensation: Compensation denial is the most typical reason for a worker compensation dispute. We have noted in many cases that employers try to escape their responsibilities. If someone is injured in a construction site, the employer is liable to provide compensation to the person. At ABDI and Associates, our professional construction injury attorneys help the workers to get legitimate injury compensation.
  • Compensation Amount Negotiation: In most cases, employers do not run away from responsibilities, as they offer compensation to the injured workers. But, the compensation amount is not justified. If you are not happy with the compensation, you can contact our construction injury attorneys for legal guidance to obtain the deserving compensation. We negotiate with the employer on your behalf.
  • Undocumented Incident: When an accident happens in a construction site, the case must be reported to the manager or supervisor. The cases are not registered when none informs the supervisor about the accident to the supervisor. Sometimes, the supervisor makes a mistake and forgets to enter the incident into his registry. As a result, the employer does not approve a claim for injury compensation.
  • Death of the Worker: Accidents at the construction site can also lead to fatal consequences, and the death of the workers may happen. In such cases, employers are liable to compensate the family of the deceased workers. But, some employers deny such compensation. We help the family of the deceased to obtain the rightful compensation through our legal advice.

Common Reasons for Construction Site Injuries

ABDI and Associates is a veteran legal consultancy company that specializes in resolving disputes in worker compensation claims. Veteran Los Angeles construction accident lawyer at our company has dealt with many worker compensation cases. From our experience, we can conclude that injuries at construction sites happen for a few common reasons. Find some of those reasons in the following section.

  • Equipment Malfunction: Construction workers have to deal with heavy equipment, and the workers undergo safety training for handling the equipment. Due to lack of maintenance, equipment malfunction may happen. As a result, workers handling the equipment suffer a major or minor injury.
  • Falling Objects: When developing high-rise buildings, heavy materials and equipment have been lifted. Due to lack of awareness or negligence, a heavy object may fall from the top of the workers. Such injuries are fatal, as the head injury happens in most such cases. The injured person needs quick hospitalization for emergency treatment.
  • Fall from the Top: Construction workers have to use cables to climb at the top to perform their jobs. Workers may fall from the top due to many reasons such as cable malfunction, lack of awareness, absence of safety equipment, etc. Such injuries are also fatal, and thus the victim should obtain emergency medical care.
  • Caught between Objects: Getting caught between objects is another common reason for construction site injury. The victim may suffer from neck, shoulder, spinal, cord, and other injuries in such cases. The consequence of such injury can be a permanent or temporary disability.
  • Electrocution: According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), fatal accidents in construction sites happen due to electrocution. Today, construction workers use various electrical instruments. Inadequate safety measures and short-circuit can lead to electrocution.

All these accidental injuries at construction sites happen due to many reasons. Sometimes, workers make mistakes, as they do not follow the safety guidelines properly. In a few cases, poor working conditions in the workplace lead to accidents. Lastly, an accident may happen even though both workers and employers have done nothing wrong. An injury due to equipment malfunction is an example of a scenario where workers and employers have done nothing wrong.

Irrespective of the accidents, the victims can claim compensation from the employers or building contractors. The compensation amount depends on the nature of the injury and the medical expenses required for the complete treatment of the injury. We help the workers to assess the compensation they deserve. Nevertheless, we take all legal steps to ensure the clients get the deserving compensation from the employer.
