Riverside, CA Construction Accidents Attorneys
Construction Accident Lawyers in Southern California
When you work on a construction site the risk of being injured in an accident is high. Working in construction is one of the most dangerous occupations, and accidents can result in serious injuries and fatalities. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed, you have rights. The attorneys at Martinez & Schill LLP are skilled in helping injured clients obtain full financial compensation. We investigate our cases carefully and strive to hold all liable parties responsible for their negligence.
Compensation for Construction Accident Injuries
If you are injured on the job, the law says that you cannot file a lawsuit against your employer even if your employer was at fault. Rather, you must go through the workers’ compensation system. If a party other than your employer shared fault in your accident, however, you may pursue a legal action against that party. For example, if you are a subcontractor and you are injured on a construction site that was unsafe, you could potentially pursue compensation from the general contractor who is tasked with maintaining a safe working environment. This is called a third party cause of action.
When you work in construction, an injury can devastate your life and your livelihood. Most construction jobs require physical labor, which may be impossible following a serious injury. We understand that dealing with the legal complexities of a personal injury case while trying to recover physically can be extremely overwhelming. Our attorneys will guide you through the legal process and help you make informed decisions as your case progresses. We are skilled negotiators and litigators, and we fight for our clients’ right to maximum compensation both in and out of court.
