Construction workers in California are well aware of the risks associated with their job. Safety-conscious workers are not immune to accidents and injuries on construction sites. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, you are not alone. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits from your employer, and a skilled workers’ compensation attorney can guide you through the process to ensure you receive the necessary medical care and compensation.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that approximately 150,000 construction site injuries occur annually, primarily due to falls and contact with heavy equipment. As a construction worker injured on the job, you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.

California’s workers’ compensation laws provide a no-fault system, allowing you to file a claim for benefits regardless of who caused your injury, as long as it occurred at work. Workers’ compensation covers medical expenses and approximately two-thirds of lost wages during recovery.

At Avian Law Group, our attorneys are knowledgeable about California’s workers’ compensation regulations and are dedicated to leveraging this expertise for your benefit.

Construction work is inherently dangerous, and accidents can happen on-site. Every construction worker has the right to a safe work environment, and workers’ compensation laws cover injuries such as electrocutions and falling object incidents. Our attorneys will assist you in filing a successful workers’ compensation claim, allowing you to focus on recovery and financial stability, and ensuring you receive maximum compensation.

Steps to Take After a Construction Accident:

  1. Seek Medical Attention: After an accident, prioritize medical care, even for minor injuries. Immediate medical attention not only aids in recovery but also provides documentation linking your injuries to the construction site accident.
  2. File a Report: Report any workplace injury to your superiors to document the accident and raise awareness of unsafe conditions.
  3. Gather Evidence and Witnesses: Record details of the accident and gather names and photos of the scene. Collect witness contact information for further investigation.
  4. Get Legal Assistance: Avian Law Group will provide legal advice and representation to ensure compliance with reporting rules and time limits, helping you obtain all entitled benefits.

Building a Strong Construction Accident Case:

For a successful case, you’ll need:

  • Witness contact information

The Workers’ Compensation Claims Process with Avian Law Group

In California, if you experience a work-related injury or illness, it’s mandatory for your employer to provide workers’ compensation benefits. For instance, if you get a severe hand injury while sawing wood at a construction site, or suffer a significant back injury from a fall off a ladder, you’re entitled to file for workers’ compensation benefits.

It’s crucial to report any construction accident to your employer immediately by informing your supervisor about the injury. Prompt reporting helps avoid complications later, especially if there are claims that the injury didn’t happen at work. It also ensures you get timely medical attention. Your employer should complete an accident report, and you need a copy for your records to support your claim.

If you don’t notify your employer about your injury within 30 days, and this prevents a thorough investigation, you might lose your right to claim workers’ compensation benefits under California law.

Provide detailed descriptions of the accident, including your actions, how the accident occurred, your injuries, and their impact on you. Also, obtain written statements from any witnesses.
