California law mandates that all employers provide a safe work environment that is free from unreasonable hazards. These laws also apply to construction companies. When an employee is injured at a California job site, Dixon & Daley, LLP, is available to assist with filing a workers' compensation claim. Dixon & Daley, LLP, focuses its practice on the Southern California area.
Due to the dangerous nature involved in the construction industry, employees who are hurt may suffer catastrophic injury. An employee may fall from substantial heights while working on scaffolding or be permanently injured due to an equipment malfunction. In order to prevail with a workers' compensation claim, an intensive examination of all supporting evidence could be conducted in order to bolster the case. This may require an attorney to review medical records, witness reports and accident reports. In some situations, expert testimony may be sought in order to determine which party was at fault for the accident.
