Los Angeles Construction Accident Attorneys

A construction worker who is injured on the job can usually qualify for workers’ compensation, but may have an additional claim against another negligent party. Even when a workers’ compensation claim is approved, it doesn’t fully replace lost income and frequently falls short of covering all of the damages compensable in a personal injury case.

Third-Party Liability In Construction Accident Cases

If your injury was caused by a faulty piece of equipment or the negligence of someone who is not a co-employee — like the employee of a different subcontractor — then you can file a personal injury claim against that party. Since you were injured at work, you can receive that settlement in addition to your normal workers’ compensation benefits.

A civil case coordinated with a workers’ compensation award can provide fair justice and full compensation for you and your family. If you have suffered a serious injury on a work site, the personal injury lawyers at Heller Law Firm, APC in Woodland Hills, California, will investigate the incident to determine if there is third-party liability that warrants a personal injury claim.

Our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. You do not pay attorney fees unless we obtain a recovery for you, through either negotiation or a judgment. For more information, contact us to discuss your case.

Products And Premises Liability

If you were injured using a tool, working with building materials or running machinery, you may have a products liability claim if the product you were using is defective.

Of course, you don’t have to be a construction worker to suffer an injury at a construction site. People walking near construction areas can be injured by falling debris or unsafe conditions caused by the construction. These people may have a premises liability claim.
