Whether working in an underground excavation project or on high-rise urban scaffolding, construction workers face the risk of being seriously injured on a daily basis. Although most contractors take all necessary precautions to ensure their employees’ safety, those who do not can be held legally responsible for any serious injuries sustained during a construction accident. Our Stockton and Modesto-area construction accident attorneys represent victims throughout Northern California who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of an employer or contractor.
The types of injuries sustained in a construction accident are generally quite serious. They can include broken bones, brain and spinal cord injury, and serious burn injury, sometimes even leading to the wrongful death of an employee. Employees may be exposed to harmful chemicals such as asbestos or sustain injuries resulting from equipment malfunction, compressed gas, electrical glitches, and even on-site vehicle collisions. If your injuries were in any way caused by the negligence of your employer, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation as well as additional damages.
If you have been involved in a construction accident, you are most likely eligible for workers’ compensation, which provides financial support to employees who sustain on-the-job injuries. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation rarely provides enough support to cover the loss in wages, medical expenses, and lifestyle changes associated with a serious personal injury. Likewise, it is never enough to compensate for the emotional pain, changes in family life, and stress that follow a serious injury. If you have been injured on the job in Stockton, Modesto, or anywhere in California, the construction accident attorneys at Drivon, Turner & Waters can help you and your family recover as successfully as possible. We will help you understand your company’s benefits package and determine if your workers’ compensation is adequate to cover your expenses. If it is not, we will assist you in bringing a claim against any and all negligent parties responsible for your construction accident injury.
