Dangerous Work Conditions
Construction Accidents & Injuries in Los Angeles
As it is, construction sites may be dangerous places to work. The risk of injury only increases in the presence of construction site supervisor negligence, improper training, lack of safety equipment, or poor implementation of state or federal safety regulations. If you or someone you know was injured at a construction site due to dangerous work conditions, an attorney at our law firm may be able to help. We represent injured construction workers throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and we also take on construction injury claims involving construction site visitors or innocent passersby.
Dangerous work conditions at a construction site make way for countless "accidents waiting to happen" and place everyone at the site or in the vicinity of the site at risk of injury. There are numerous specific construction accidents that may result from an unsafe work environment, including fires and explosions, scaffolding accidents, construction site falls, roof falls, building collapse, electrocution, falling objects, and much more. Any one of these may leave a worker or other injured party hospitalized or facing the possibility of a temporary or permanent disability.
Your Rights in a Dangerous or Unsafe Work Environment
As a worker, you have the right to demand a safe work environment. If you observe signs that a construction site is not up to safety standards, do not hesitate to report this to your employer so it can be remedied. If you or a family member has already been injured in a construction accident because of dangerous work conditions, you can seek legal recourse by way of a personal injury or workers' compensation claim - therefore seeking financial damages for your injuries.Discuss your options with a skilled professional.
