We Can Help You With An Assortment Of Injury Claims

We handle a wide range of disabling, catastrophic and fatal accident claims, including:

  • Falls from heights, including ladders, roofs and scaffolds
  • Crane accidents involving falling objects or boom mishaps
  • Motor vehicle accidents involving earth-moving equipment, delivery trucks, dump trucks, landscapers' pickups or trucks hauling construction equipment
  • Nail gun injury claims
  • Severe burns caused by electrocution or explosion
  • Excavation accidents involving trench collapse, vehicle rollover or blunt force impact from falling objects or debris
  • Highway construction zone injuries or fatalities

Although California workers' compensation law will generally preclude a civil lawsuit for damages by an injured worker against his or her own employer, a personal injury or wrongful death case can be brought against negligent subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, property owners or other third parties, even while workers' comp benefits are being paid. Because many components of your overall damages are not covered by workers' compensation, it is essential to obtain dependable advice about your legal options in any work-related injury claim.
