Guidance From A Skilled Pasadena Construction Accident Lawyer

When a construction worker suffers a construction site injury, he or she often cannot make a claim against the employer for work-related injuries. Those must be handled through the California Workers’ Compensation Act. However, someone other than your employer can be negligent when an injury occurs on the job site. Property owners, architects, contractors and equipment manufacturers can all be liable for insufficient safety measures when a construction site accident occurs. At the McNally Law Office, we will represent you and hold all negligent parties accountable if they caused or contributed to your injuries.

General contractors and subcontractors are responsible for providing the appropriate safety provisions to ensure that the construction site is reasonably safe. It is their obligation to hire employees who will exercise caution. The contractor has a responsibility to check that appropriate safety specifications are being followed to avoid construction site accidents. When a contractor (other than your employer) or other employees fail in their obligations and you are injured because of that failure, we may be able to recover compensation for your damages.

Dangerous And Defective Equipment Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries

Manufacturers of construction equipment may also be responsible for designing and maintaining safe products. Dangerous or defective equipment that has caused construction site injuries include:

  • Scaffolding
  • Cranes
  • Power tools
  • Ladders
  • Heavy equipment

Did You Suffer A Scaffolding Injury On A Construction Job?

Construction sites are among America’s most dangerous workplaces. Every day, workers put their jobs and lives on the line when they work high up on scaffolding, ladders and other elevating devices. Serious workplace injuries can happen when workers fall while trying to reach a work area.

If you have suffered a workplace injury from a fall because of an unsafe scaffold, ladder, cherry picker or any other lift device on a construction site, get legal help right away. The personal injury team at McNally Law Office – Pasadena Personal Injury Attorney will fight for full and fair money damages for your lost wages, pain and medical bills. We practice only personal injury law, and we know how to recover for you.

Investigating The Cause Of Your Construction Scaffolding Accident

Attorney Frank McNally leads our personal injury litigation team with over 25 years of experience. We file insurance claims and lawsuits against third parties responsible for construction site accidents. We know how to investigate third-party liability for construction site accidents, including:

  • Scaffold subcontractor liability
  • Scaffolding falls
  • Defective scaffold and ladder equipment
  • Employee negligence, lack of supervision
  • Inadequate ground preparation, property owner premises liability

If you need help filing your workers’ comp claim, we will refer you to the right law firm.

Every year, electronic cranes and lift buckets, often called cherry pickers, are responsible for many injuries and deaths on construction sites. We also represent workers injured in wall and roof collapses and by falling objects. If you were injured by a lift bucket, crane or a collapse, we will seek out every party that shares fault and aggressively fight for compensation on your behalf. We regularly advise clients on Pasadena scaffolding accidents and can help you understand your rights to compensation.

When Employers Are Responsible For An Accident

Construction companies are responsible for creating a safe and secure work environment for their employees and those who are working on the job site. This means the owners, managers and foremen need to comply with state and federal safety standards.

Proper, well-maintained equipment should be provided. All hazards that can be prevented – such as falls or electrical shocks – should be. Those in charge of the site need to maintain a log of the safety steps taken and of any injuries that have happened on the site to workers. In some cases, companies have tried to cut corners in order to speed up the process or save on cost. When they cut out safety measures or use substandard equipment and a worker gets hurt, the owners need to be held accountable.

How Do You Recover For A Construction Vehicle Accident Injury?

The large trucks, cranes and other vehicles moving around construction sites put builders and subcontractors in harm’s way everyday. If you are a day laborer or construction worker injured by a dump truck earth mover, bobcat or any other piece of construction machinery, call us. An experienced lawyer can make a decisive difference in the amount of money damages you collect from the equipment subcontractor or manufacturer.

We represent construction workers and day laborers in all personal injury and wrongful death claims resulting from:

Pasadena Day Laborer Injury Attorneys

Day laborers will spend their early mornings looking for work, hoping to be hired for a project. Homeowners who hire day laborers have a duty to not put workers in harm’s way. For example, a low-hanging power line or any other dangerous condition could cause severe injury and even death. If they are injured in an accident at work, they cannot recover workers’ compensation benefits. At the McNally Law Office – Pasadena Personal Injury Attorney in Pasadena, California, we represent day laborers who have been injured on a job site.
