Construction workers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. The attorneys at James McKiernan Lawyers understand the risks construction workers take to earn a living — and the sudden and crippling injuries they can suffer. If you or someone you love was injured at a project site, you deserve compensation. Some cases may involve simple matters of collecting workers compensation while others might involve complicated personal injury lawsuits.

California Construction Accident Attorneys

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets safety standards for construction sites across the country. Under OSHA regulations, you have the right to receive training and information regarding the hazardous materials you work with. You have the right to be involved in an OSHA investigation. You have the right to information about OSHA standards — and the right to file a complaint if these standards are not met.

If safety regulations are not observed, construction accidents can occur, such as:

  • Crane accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Electrocution
  • Machinery accidents: Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Falling objects accidents
  • Forklift injuries
  • Occupational exposure to toxic chemicals or other dangerous materials
  • Site debris accidents
  • Chemical spills

Immediately following an accident, seek medical attention. Keep all medical records and be certain to report the injury to your employer. Then, speak with a personal injury lawyer in California to learn about your legal rights.
