Construction Site Injuries
When You've Been Hurt on the Job
One of the riskiest areas for injury are construction sites. Because so many serious injuries come from construction sites, some of our largest cases have involved workplace accidents. If you have been involved in a construction accident or other workplace incident, consult with a construction accident attorney.
Falling from heights, falling objects, and heavy equipment are known dangers at work sites. These work place hazards have caused countless accidents that maim, seriously injure, and/or kill people.
What Are Your Rights to Compensation?
Although employees cannot sue their own employers for negligence if they receive Labor and Industry (L&I) payments, there are many other cases which can be investigated involving serious workplace injury. Accidents involving visitors to work sites, inspectors, delivery business people, and family members are actionable and viable cases. Sometimes employees are injured by the negligence of some other third party. For example, we helped an injured employee who was electrocuted at a work site due to the negligence of the power company, which knew their lines were dangerous yet failed to protect their electrified lines for the safety of those performing work in the area.
Experienced Legal Representation
When searching for a construction accident attorney, there are many factors to consider. How long has the lawyer been in practice? What is their success rate? Have they handled claims like yours before? At Tamaki Law, we have decades of collective experience with accidents, injuries, and even deaths related to construction sites.
