Construction Site Accidents

In Southern California, it seems that new construction is taking place on every street in every city. Whether it is an elaborate office building in a busy downtown or an expansive housing tract in the suburbs, buildings are rising in only a matter of weeks, from prep to finish.

Construction workers are constantly fighting the clock to get the job done quickly and efficiently, often pressured by property owners and contractors. With the mounting pressure to build taller and more elaborate buildings in shorter amounts of time, construction workers are being put at an even higher risk of injury by negligence site foremen or inadequately maintained equipment.

Most Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley construction site accidents occur as the result of the risky conditions workers face.

Some construction site hazards that result in death or serious injury are:
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falling from a high location
  • Motor vehicle crashes
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Forklift injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Machinery accidents
  • Getting hit by falling items

Contractors, architects, manufacturers and property owners may be held liable for injuries or wrongful deaths that take place at the construction site. If you or someone you know has been the victim of a construction accident in the Los Angeles area as a result of someone’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim against the careless person responsible for your safety.
