Construction work is an important but dangerous profession for employees. With so many moving parts and heavy machinery, it is no surprise that construction accident and injuries occur frequently. RP Law Group has represented countless construction workers in workers’ compensation cases, and we are eager to help you, too.
Safety at Construction Work Sites
Under California state law, construction employers are required to follow safety protocols in an attempt to prevent construction accidents to both employees and passersby. They are obligated to:
- Provide a reasonably safe work environment
- Warn others of dangers that may not be obvious
- Adhere to all regulations and policies
- Maintain a relatively clean and safe site
If your employer cuts any corners or is found to be negligent in their duty of care, you may have grounds to sue them as opposed to merely working within the workers’ compensation system.
Holding Employers Accountable
If you have suffered an injury due to a construction accident and your employer is impeding your ability to collect workers’ compensation benefits, you need to call RP Law Group right away. We will help you file your claim, submit all necessary paperwork, involve appropriate government employment law agencies, and defend your claim in court if needed.
