Construction Accident Attorney – Serving All of California
Construction sites can present serious dangers to workers and others in the vicinity. Construction accidents often occur as the result of workers being required to lift heavy objects, operate large machinery, and work at great heights. Common causes of construction accidents include exposure to hazardous materials, collapsing scaffolding, injuries involving tools or debris, and employees falling from elevated heights. Injuries sustained as a result of these accidents can be very severe and may result in short or long term disability, permanent work loss or even death.
If you have been injured in a construction accident, you have legal rights. Susan Handel is an experienced construction accident attorney who can provide you with the counsel and representation you need to assert your legal rights and protect your interests. The risks inherent on construction sites do not excuse construction company owners, third party vendors, manufacturers, architects, and other parties from liability in the event their actions or negligence in some way contributed to an injury or death. Knowing this, you can take action to ensure your rights are protected following an on-the-job injury. At our firm, we work with experts in various fields to help determine fault and establish liability in construction accident cases. This step is an integral part of the litigation process, as the successful outcome of your claim is entirely dependent on it. So who and which parties, exactly, can be held liable in construction accidents?
