On Behalf of | Aug 25, 2014 | Construction Workers' Accidents

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.

Determining who is to blame after a construction accident is often a complex process. This makes it more difficult to obtain the benefits to which you are entitled. However, our workers’ compensation lawyer at Dixon & Daley, LLP, can thoroughly examine the particulars of a case in order to determine who the responsible parties are. These individuals may include a direct supervisor, a general contractor, a subcontractor or an independent contractor. Additionally, our workers’ compensation lawyer may investigate the company to determine if it has violated any requirements mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Some situations may result in filing a third-party claim in addition to any workers’ compensation claim that you choose to pursue.

If you or your family member has been injured at work, you may not be sure how to go about a workers’ compensation case. If you would like to learn more about what we can do for a case, you can read our page about construction accidents.
