Construction Accidents

Encino Construction Accident Attorneys

Fighting for the Rights of Everyday Individuals & Workers

A booming California economy has spurred a significant growth in new construction projects, particularly in Los Angeles and throughout the Southern California region. An upbeat construction industry, however, brings increased risks of construction site accidents despite California’s strict regulations requiring safety measures in the work site and a growing awareness of construction safety practices.

In 2015, there were approximately 313,000 construction workers in Southern California. Construction jobs are one of the most dangerous occupations that expose workers to hazardous conditions in the workplace. If you were injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Just because injuries are common in the industry doesn’t mean you deserve to suffer. Binder Law Group's Encino construction accident attorneys are available to pursue justice on your behalf.

Common Construction Site Injuries

A construction worker can suffer injuries as a result of:

  • Being struck by construction machinery
  • Failure to give adequate protection
  • Electrocution
  • Serious falls from heights
  • Respiratory damage
  • Injuries from lifting and repetitive motions
  • Improper, inadequate, faulty, or broken equipment
  • Improper, inadequate, faulty, or broken safety gear
  • Collapsing scaffolding or climbing work platforms

Falls are particularly dangerous and are the leading cause of death in the construction industry. Thus, California law requires construction employers to provide fall protection and protective gear for workers performing jobs at great heights. These fall safety measures include the installation of guardrails, safety nets, and other systems and implementation of safety programs at the workplace. Despite state regulations for construction site safety, construction site accidents still happen, causing fatal and severe injuries to workers. If you or a loved one has sustained severe injuries in a construction site accident, our attorneys can help you pursue reasonable compensation for your injuries.
