Construction Accidents - Blackman Legal GroupOn a typical construction site, the general contractor entrusts foundation, steel, concrete, electrical, glass and other subcontractors with the duty to do their jobs well and maintain a safe site. When a negligent subcontractor causes an accident that injures another worker, the injured workercan hold the liable parties accountable.

At Blackman Legal Group, we handle construction site accident injury claims only for workers who were injured by subcontractors in California. We do not handle workers’ compensation claims against contractors and employers.

Construction site accidents result in thousands of on-the-job injuries each year. Our accident injury attorneys handle claims relating to construction accidents of all kinds, on behalf of construction workers as well as pedestrians or other individuals. Common construction-related accident injury claims can include:

  • Falling debris and materials
  • Falls from scaffolding or ladders
  • Scaffolding collapses
  • Boiler accidents, fires and explosions
  • Electric shock and explosions
  • Compressed gas accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Backhoe accidents
  • Highway vehicle accidents

Pedestrians passing by a construction site may be hit by falling materials and suffer serious head and brain injuries or fatal injuries. A construction worker may be hit by a delivery truck or be crushed under heavy construction materials. When these and other construction site accidents are caused by the negligence of a subcontractor, we can help.

We handle construction site accident cases involving crush injuries, electrical burn injuries, broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries. We can help you with any third party claim against a negligent or careless subcontractor, or against any person who is not employed by your project’s general contractor.
