If you suffer a construction accident in Los Angeles, do you know what to do? This is not just a hypothetical; it is estimated that 1 in 10 workers suffer a workplace accident in any given year. Construction accidents do not only involve workers; site visitors can be injured as well.

The construction workplace is dangerous anywhere, and Los Angeles is no exception. Workers can fall from heights. Flying objects can hit them. They can be injured by vehicles, equipment, power tools, electric shock, fires, explosions and toxic chemicals. Trenches can collapse. Workers can be trapped between heavy objects.

Common injuries include spinal injuries, concussions and traumatic brain injuries, burns, fractures, damaged muscles and ligaments, heart attacks, and strokes. Sometimes accidents result in death. People injured in the workplace deserve to be compensated for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of ability to live fully and enjoy life.

In most construction accidents, workers cannot sue their employer but must file a workers’ compensation claim. If the accident was the fault of a third party – a manufacturer, a subcontractor, or a visitor to the site – then a personal injury suit may be required for you to receive compensation.

If you are injured on the job, follow these steps:

  • See a doctor as soon as possible.
  • Report your injury to your employer to initiate a workers’ comp claim.
  • Gather evidence by taking photos and talking to eyewitnesses.
  • Contact a personal injury attorney. You may be entitled to compensation, but that does not mean you will automatically get it.

Josh was introduced to me when I had a car accident in 2019 and he worked fast and hard to make sure I was taken care of and he was always a phone call away if I needed something. I was set up with doctors, chiropractors, etc… asap after my car accident and he made sure I was good and well taken care of until I was back to 100%. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
