Construction workers face dangers every day in the workplace. To avoid serious or fatal accidents, construction sites must comply with strict guidelines. Failure to do so is negligence. However, even when safety regulations are complied with, accidents may still arise resulting in serious injuries or wrongful death. The Law Office of Anna Costa provides experienced legal representation to injured workers and families who have lost loved ones in a construction accident.
If you have been injured in a construction site accident, you may be entitled to restitution beyond that from workers' compensation. Since a workplace accident can affect your ability to work and earn a living, it's important to investigate all forms of compensation that may be available to you, including a personal injury lawsuit. California workers' compensation laws bar injured workers from suing their employers or co-workers in workplace accidents, even if the employer or co-worker was negligent. However, if your injury was caused by someone other than your employer, such as the site owner, a vendor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer or truck driver - you may be entitled to file a claim for personal injury.
We will conduct an immediate investigation to determine, if the negligence of a third-party was responsible for your construction site injury. Construction site accidents can include:
After a serious injury caused by dangerous property conditions, talk to an independent lawyer before discussing the incident with the property owner or an insurance company. At the very least, ask a knowledgeable attorney to review any settlement before you accept.
Deadlines are Important
If you or someone you know has been injured in a construction site there is a set period of time within which a lawsuit may be filed. This is called a Statute of Limitations and it is very important to file a case within the appropriate deadline. If the Statute of Limitations has expired relative to your situation, your lawsuit may be barred. All States have their own Statute of Limitations deadlines. Please consult an attorney to determine the applicable Statute of Limitations for your case.
