Were you injured in a Construction Accident in LA?
If so, we can help. Each year, thousands of workers are injured or killed at Los Angeles & Southern California construction sites. Although construction companies are required under California labor laws to inspect each site with safety engineers and implement a wide variety of safety measures, construction workers still face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry. California labor laws were enacted to protect construction workers from work site-related accidents--and it’s for this reason that our firm believes that most work site accidents are avoidable and that those not following laws to protect workers should be held accountable.
How we can help.
Construction jobs are very perilous fields in which a staff handles perilous duties and may suffer from injuries as a consequence of machinery failure. There are on the job accidents that may be a result of falling debris, faulty equipment, the collapse of a construction building, fire from an electrical problem, violation of certain on the job precautions and a lack of construction coaching by the employers. Although, there is a great deal of protective gear that is necessary for the job- not all accidents can be prevented. Whether or not the accident is mild or severe there should always be an entitlement to a medical treatment that was not the result of a personal choice. There are many problems that come along with accidents on the job being that there may have been a pressure towards the employee not to sign a compensation claim, a lack of monetary health benefits, not receiving satisfactory medical treatment, a medical treatment denied or a post-accident discriminatory behavior. There are over 1,000 workers that are killed with each year because of accidents that could have been prevented in the construction environment. The most common types of injuries are falls, crane injuries, scaffolding accidents, electrical accidents, the collapsing of a trench, unintentional explosions due to negligence, and injuries from welding materials.
A company is liable when it comes to educating their staff on the proper way to take safety precautions and in displaying the safety rules. If an injury has taken place on the job then the client should contact a firm in the case of them being entitled to monetary benefits, compensation, disability advantages, treatment and a covered medical examination. A law firm is obligated when it comes to understanding the injuries, the result of a severe injury and the effect that it may have on the client. A law firm must attend to the immediate needs of a client, take focus on the medical bills, consider the wage loss and determine the best treatment while handling a workplace injury. There is an excessive amount of trauma when it comes to physical disability or mental and emotional stress. There will be close contact with an insurance company so that the medical providers will insure the client’s needs and resolve a personal injury claim.
Workman’s compensation and accident claims take place when individuals are injured because of negligence and products that do not work affectively or safely. Even if the damages are punitive, the client will still be awarded as well as the firm displaying a punishment to the party that is at fault. If these types of cases are handled independently then there may not always be a satisfactory outcome, which is why it’s necessary to contact a law firm that can aide in a justified settlement. Take note that an insurance policy does not always guarantee the proper coverage; and everyone deserves a fair representation. The decision in working with a professional lawyer may result in compensation that aide the client in the suffering that they have undergone and the care that they deserve.
