The controlled chaos of a construction site presents many opportunities for serious injury, with large numbers of people and multiple companies at work, heavy equipment and power tools in use and truck traffic on and off the site. Indeed, construction workers (and even visitors to construction sites) suffer more work injuries and death than many other types of workers.
There are occasions when the construction company or the property owner that you work for will try to fight you if you claim injuries that require compensation from the accident. This is when you need to talk to a Sacramento construction injury attorney at The Weinberger Law Firm.
>Construction site accidents can be avoided, but it takes commitment and effort on the part of the contractor and every company on the job site to ensure that safety comes first. Negligence of a subcontractor, a delivery truck driver, an electrician or an equipment operator can have fatal results for people or other work crews.
If you have been injured on a construction site in Northern California, or a loved one died from a fall, electrocution or some other type of construction accident, contact a Sacramento construction injury lawyer at The Weinberger Law Firm. Attorney Joseph Weinberger has more than 20 years of experience bringing personal injury cases to court or negotiating with insurance companies for a fair settlement.
Proving that an accident was caused by the negligence of a third party and not by an employer’s or worker’s negligence is one of the critical parts of bringing a third-party claim on a job site. However, a person who has suffered a serious injury may not know the exact cause of the accident.
The Weinberger Law Firm works with investigators and experts in the field to determine the cause and extent of your injuries in many cases, including, but not limited to: cases involving back injuries from falls; faulty safety harnesses failing or not being provided; amputation injuries from equipment; broken bones or wrongful death from scaffold falls in which the scaffolds are defectively designed or improperly constructed; head injuries from falling objects; crushing injuries from excavation cave-ins; equipment rollovers or delivery truck accidents.
