We have your best interests at heart as we aggressively pursue the construction corporations and property owners responsible for your construction site accident.

Building construction accidents

Construction workers wear hardhats and heavy boots, use special safety equipment and are trained to protect themselves from serious injuries while at the worksite. However, when pedestrians walk underneath, through or around the construction site, they are vulnerable to the construction company’s negligent actions that can result in:

Scaffolding collapsing onto the sidewalk

Tools and objects falling from overhead

Cranes crashing down onto the street below

Nails and other sharp debris scattered across the walkway

Hoses and electrical cords that pose the danger of a trip and fall

Spilled slippery substances that create a slip and fall hazard

Toxic chemicals released into the air

Explosions and fires

The property owners and the contractors responsible for the project are required to take important precautions that protect the public and the workers from injuries, such as building secure scaffolding, posting clear warning signs and lighting the area at night. You may have a valid premises liability claim against the owner of the property and a cause of action against the construction company for breach of such duties.

Accidents caused by roadway work

Construction is a common nuisance on Southern California’s roadways. When crews fail to take proper precautions, the situation can quickly grow dangerous. Negligence that puts your safety at risk includes:

Unsecure loads of construction material on the bed of a truck

Construction debris allowed to spill into the roadway

Flying debris that can penetrate a windshield

Oil and other substances that make the pavement slick

Lack of signs to warn drivers they are approaching a construction site

Insufficient barricades to block the construction area from the regular flow of traffic

Inadequate illumination of the worksite at night

A heavy vehicle — for example, a dump truck, wheel loader or excavator — backing into your car

Grooves, cracks and steep drop-offs in the pavement

Raised manhole covers
