In California, as well as throughout the country, thousands of workers lose their lives in workplace accidents every year. Some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others; however, no matter how great a risk there happens to be, each employer is obligated to provide proper training and equipment to reduce workplace tragedies. Construction injuries are among the most common types of workplace accidents.
Employers aren’t the only ones whose negligence often leads to construction accidents. If you’ve suffered damages due to on-the-job injuries, the accident in question might be due to the negligence of a project manager, equipment manufacturer, architect, contractor or other third party. Maybe your injury had something to do with a failed piece of equipment, such as scaffolding or a power tool.
Seeking medical and legal support, as needed
The first priority in the aftermath of a construction accident is always to seek immediate medical attention. Not only is this the swiftest way to obtain treatment, it also documents the incident, which can come in handy down the line, especially if you wind up filing a legal claim. Construction injury litigation can be complex and stressful, which is why it’s helpful to act alongside experienced legal representation in court.
