Construction Accident & Construction Injuries
Construction work is necessary, but it is also dangerous for personnel. Construction accidents and injuries are common since so many moving pieces and heavy machines are used. We are glad to assist you as well. RP Law Group has represented countless construction employees in workers’ compensation lawsuits.
WORKPLACE SAFETY IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
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.
IMPOSING RESPONSIBILITIES ON EMPLOYERS
If you have been injured in a construction accident and your employer is preventing you from receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you should contact RP Law Group as soon as possible. We will assist you in filing your claim, submitting all required documents, involving appropriate government employment law agencies, and, if necessary, defending your construction accident claim in court.
