Negligent Construction Companies Don't Escape Our Keen Eye

Whether working on 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 in construction accidents.

In the Stockton and Modesto area, the accident lawyers to turn to are at Drivon, Turner & Waters, PLC. We only represent victims — not insurance companies — throughout Northern California who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of an employer or contractor.

Construction Accident Injuries

Injuries suffered in a construction accident are generally quite serious. They can include broken bones, brain and spinal cord injury, and serious burn injuries, sometimes even leading to the wrongful death of an employee. Employees may be exposed to harmful chemicals such as asbestos or suffer 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.

Construction Accident Compensation

If you have been involved in a construction accident, you are most likely eligible for workers' compensation, which provides financial support to employees who suffer on-the-job injuries. Unfortunately, workers' compensation rarely provides enough support to cover lost wages, medical expenses and lifestyle changes associated with a serious personal injury. Likewise, it is never enough to compensate for the emotional pain, stress and changes in family life that follow a serious injury.

If you have been injured on the job in Stockton or Modesto or anywhere in California, the attorneys at Drivon Turner & Waters, PLC, can help you and your family recover as successfully as possible. We will help you understand your company's benefits package and determine if 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, helping you recover maximum compensation to meet your needs.
