San Rafael Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, and new projects are always going up around San Rafael. Some construction accidents have to go through California’s workers’ comp system, but many do not. Accident victims who do not have a valid workers’ comp claim can sometimes file a personal injury claim, but these have the potential to become complex, as well. A San Rafael construction accident lawyer can help you file these claims and give you the best chance of securing the damages you deserve.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

A construction accident can occur in a number of ways. The most common of these include:

  • Slip and falls
  • Falling objects
  • Defective equipment
  • Fires and explosions
  • Structural collapse
  • Overexertion
  • Respiratory disease
  • Lack of safety protocols

Unfortunately, these are just a few of the ways in which someone could become hurt on a construction site. Anyone who has been injured should seek the counsel of a construction accident attorney in San Rafael who can determine whether they have a claim.

Liability in Construction Accidents

Any negligent action could result in a serious construction accident. However, the most common liable parties are as follows:

  • The construction company: Construction companies can be held liable for their injuries when they have purchased equipment without ensuring its safety, or when they have hired co-workers without first conducting a proper background check. Construction companies can also be held civilly liable when it is not a construction worker that is injured, but an innocent bystander.
  • Property owner: Whether it is a construction worker or a bystander that is injured, property owners can be held liable when they have not ensured their property was a safe place to conduct their work. In these instances, it is important to note that the property owner must have known, or had reason to know, about an unsafe condition.
  • Product manufacturers: In the best of cases, the equipment construction workers use is inherently dangerous. When it is defective, it becomes even more unsafe for even the most experienced construction workers to use. When a piece of equipment is defective or faulty, injured individuals can hold product manufacturers liable.

Determining who was liable for your accident is one of the most difficult aspects of any personal injury claim, including those involving construction accidents. A San Rafael construction accident lawyer can determine who was to blame for your accident, and help you secure the full amount of damages you deserve.
