Frequently Asked Questions about Construction Accidents in San Pedro

Should I file a worker’s compensation claim or a personal injury claim?

In many instances, the first recourse for recovering compensation as a construction worker is by filing a workers’ compensation claim. However, depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be able to file a personal injury claim. This is possible if another party aside from your employer is responsible for your accident, e.g., the manufacturer of a defective product.

It is therefore important to consult with an experienced San Pedro construction accident attorney. Attorney Preston Easley provides a free consultation for injured construction workers. He will review your case for free and provide you with guidance on your rights and the options available to you.

What if my employer does not carry workers’ compensation?

Employers in California are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This is particularly important for employees working in dangerous conditions such as construction sites. However, if your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, you can still recover compensation. You can file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer. However, unlike workers’ compensation, which is a no-fault system, you will have to prove that your employer was negligent and that their negligence resulted in your injury. The other issue that arises with filing personal injury lawsuits against employers is that your employer will need to be financially solvent in order to pay your damages.
