The workers’ compensation system in California is woefully inadequate. Worker’s Compensation benefits are unlikely to cover all of the financial needs caused by a serious injury, so it is critical to look for other potential sources of compensation. We are skilled at identifying those other sources.
When a construction accident is caused by a third party – a party other than your employer – a personal injury claim can be filed against that party. For example, if the accident was caused by a different contractor or subcontractor, a lawsuit can be filed against that party. Frequently, construction accidents are the result of defective products. In these cases, a lawsuit can be filed against the product manufacturer. The goal is to get you full compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs, including compensation for pain and suffering. We know how to achieve that goal.
