Riverside Construction Accident Lawyer
A Riverside construction accident lawyer from Dickson, Kohan & Bablove, LLP could be invaluable if you have been injured in a construction accident. Working a construction job places you in danger of being injured on a daily basis. In fact, the industry is so dangerous, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has implemented safety outreach programs specifically to prevent the occurrence of construction accidents.
Your employer is required to abide by OSHA standards in order to prevent injuries and keep you safe. If they have not complied and consequently created unsafe work conditions, you may be able to sue them for financial damages.
Common Construction Accidents
According to OSHA, the top four fatal construction accidents are as follows:
- Being electrocuted
- Getting trapped between two objects
- Being struck by an object
These accidents can lead to a variety of injuries and even death. Things like broken bones, internal bleeding, back injuries, head injuries, and more all commonly occur when safety precautions are not observed on job sites.
Protect Your Rights
After being injured on the job, you and your employer may have conflicting interests. Their objective will be to protect their financial interests, which often means getting you back to work quickly and avoiding paying for costly procedures. Many employers will attempt to limit their liability as much as possible.
Your employer will have an insurance policy in place, and the insurer will put a lawyer on your case. This makes it critical that you hire a Riverside construction accident lawyer from our firm to protect your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly.
You have the right to recover to the fullest extent possible. If you need certain medical procedures in order to do so and the insurance company or your employer do not want to pay for them, call our office immediately.
Don’t Get Pushed Around
Sometimes, employers will use scare tactics to get employees to return to work before they have fully healed. Do not go back to work unless you have been cleared by your doctor. Otherwise, you could aggravate your injury, and your condition could worsen.
If you feel that your job is being threatened or that intimidation tactics are being used against you, call our office to speak with a Riverside construction accident lawyer.
Get Financial Compensation for Your Construction Accident Injury
A Riverside construction accident lawyer from Dickson, Kohan & Bablove, LLP can help you receive the compensation required to enable your recovery.
After a construction accident, many workers underestimate the true extent of their injury, go back to work too soon, or settle for less money than they deserve. Our objective is to maximize the value of your claim so you can get the most money for your injuries.
You could be entitled to compensation for all of your accident-related expenses:
- Money for lost wages and income
- Cost of hiring a caretaker
- Rehabilitation costs
- Medical bills, current and future
- Expense of retraining or going back to school if you cannot continue working the same position
- Other expenses incurred by your construction accident
Settling vs. Going to Court
Without industry knowledge, it can be difficult to know whether you are being offered a fair settlement. A Riverside construction accident lawyer from our office can review any offers you receive and determine whether you should accept.
If going to court is your best option, we will need to first file a lawsuit, naming anyone who was responsible for your injuries. We will then gather evidence to build a strong case that documents all of the following points:
- How you were injured
- Where the accident took place
- What happened during and after the accident
- Who witnessed the accident
- The responsible parties
- The extent of your injuries
- How your injuries have impacted your life
By collecting witness testimony, accident reports, and medical and financial data, we can build a convincing case to present in court.
Wrongful Death on the Job
If someone you love died due to a construction accident, you could have a wrongful death claim against either the company the deceased was working for or against the manufacturer of the safety equipment that was in use. Call us and schedule a consultation to determine if a wrongful death suit may be possible in your situation.
Construction Accident Injuries to Pedestrians and Drivers
