Recovering Compensation for Construction Accidents 

Construction accidents are unique. This is because the victims are often construction workers that are injured while on the job. Construction accidents, therefore, present victims with two options for pursuing compensation. 

Workers’ compensation 

California law requires employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Workers injured on construction sites can seek financial compensation for their injuries by making a claim against their employer’s insurance policy. 

Personal injury 

Workers can seek compensation for injuries caused by third parties other than their employers. They, however, will have to demonstrate fault and negligence in order to recover compensation through this route.

Frequently Asked Questions about Construction Accidents in Los Angeles, CA

My workers’ compensation settlement does not cover all my medical bills and damages. What should I do?

At The Law Offices of Preston Easley, we understand the economic pressure that a construction accident can have on a victim and their family. We also know that workers’ compensation settlements are often limited in the damages they cover. We offer victims of construction accidents the opportunity to consult with an experienced construction accident attorney in Los Angeles, CA. We will review your case for free to determine the options available to you. If your accident was caused by the negligence of a third party, we will help you file a third-party lawsuit against the third party to recover financial compensation. For example, you can file a third-party claim against a manufacturer or sub-contractor for faulty equipment. We will fight to recover any and all damages that you are eligible to recover.

I was injured in a construction accident several months ago. Can I still file a claim for compensation?

It depends. There are various time limits for pursuing compensation depending on the circumstances of your case. For example, if you were injured on a construction site that belongs to the city or other government agencies, you will have had to file your claim within six months of the date of the injury. If your injury occurred more than six months ago, you may not be able to recover compensation from the government agency.

If you want to pursue workers’ compensation for your construction accident, you must have informed your employer about the accident and your injuries within 30 days of the accident. If you failed to do so, you may not able to recover workers’ compensation benefits.

The statute of limitation for personal injury claims in California is 2 years. If you want to file a lawsuit against a third party that may have responsibility for your accident, you may still be able to recover compensation if the two-year deadline has not elapsed.
