As a construction worker, you put your body on the line simply by showing up for work in the morning. An on-the-job injury can mean more than a long and painful recovery. It can mean the loss of your career.
At the Law Offices of William W. Green & Associates, we understand what is at stake in a work-related injury. Our goal is to help you obtain the medical care you need, as well as the maximum compensation you deserve for everything you have lost. Our lawyers represent injured construction workers in Newport Beach, Anaheim and other communities in Orange County, California.
Construction Site Dangers And Common Injuries
Some of the most common construction site accidents include:
- Falls from scaffolds and ladders
- Injuries caused by objects dropped from above
- Trench collapses
- Power tool injuries
- Heavy equipment injuries
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Structure collapses
Other injuries can result from cumulative trauma rather than a specific accident. It is important to notify your attorney as soon as you realize you are unable to work due to a job-related injury.
Helping You Obtain Maximum Benefits
Workers' compensation pays benefits regardless of who was at fault. If your injury was caused by the negligence of another party, you may have both a personal injury claim and a workers' compensation claim.
While employers are generally protected from employee lawsuits, third parties (anyone who doesn't work for your employer) are not protected. Our lawyers will evaluate your case and pursue the maximum compensation from all sources.
