Experienced California Construction Accident Attorneys
Construction sites are one of the most dangerous types of work sites. The physical nature of the work coupled with the usual presence of large machinery and equipment creates many opportunities for accidental injury to occur. Some of the common injuries sustained on a construction site include those caused by:
- Falls from a height
- Falling or swinging objects
- Ladder accidents
- Lifting heavy objects
- Scaffolding accidents
Workers who have been injured on the job at a construction site are in most cases covered by workers’ compensation insurance. This is a state-run insurance plan whereby workers may collect compensation for any injury sustained at the workplace, no matter who was at fault.
Often, however, insurers still resist paying workers for their injuries, instead prioritizing their companies’ bottom lines. That’s when you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who knows how to push back against insurance companies to get you the remuneration you deserve for an on-the-job accident, even if it was caused by a third party. Call Randolph and Associates, toll free at 310-395-7900 to speak with one of our attorneys about the circumstances of your injury.
