As one of the fastest growing cities in the world, Los Angeles has many construction sites underway at any time. And, as you can expect, we have a number of construction accidents every year, typically caused by the negligence of a worker or equipment operator. Wilshire Law Firm represents victims of construction accidents. Our personal injury attorneys are experts in construction practices, standards, and regulations, and can ensure injured victims receive full compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and all other losses.
Severe injuries often result from construction accidents that involve heavy machinery and materials. Poorly maintained equipment and distracted operators can inadvertently cause a construction accident by putting other drivers and pedestrians in harm’s way. In a worst case scenario, accident victims may require emergency medical care and transportation by ambulance to the nearest hospital trauma center. To guarantee the victim’s immediate access to all necessary medical facilities and treatments, contact a personal injury attorney from Wilshire Law Firm as soon as possible.
Construction accident victims may be more likely to suffer the loss of an arm or leg as the machinery used is capable of cutting, penetrating, or crushing hard substances at fast speeds. The victim may then have long-term pain or require ongoing medical care. Our attorneys secure expert assessments of the extent and potential duration of the injuries received so that total rehabilitation is completely funded.
The professional construction accident injury lawyers at Wilshire Law Firm will capably represent your best interests to the negligent party’s insurance company. To ensure a proper recovery and a restoration of your life and health, the firm is prepared to pursue a legal course of action if a suitable settlement cannot be reached. Legal action can also ensure adequate total compensation is received for all expenses related to the accident, plus any lost wages.
We represent clients on a contingent fee basis. You pay no money out-of-pocket, and we cover reasonable litigation expenses in pursuing your claims. The firm is not reimbursed and compensated unless we secure a settlement in your favor. If you do not have proper medical insurance, the firm is prepared to arrange medical treatment, no matter how expensive or lengthy the required services may be, by a qualified doctor or hospital under a lien on your future settlement.
To establish the liability and fault of the negligent party and any contributory negligence, Wilshire Law Firm employs private investigators to document the facts and determine the circumstances of your construction accident. Site scene analysts can reconstruct or re-enact certain construction accidents and obtain video documentation, if appropriate. Testimony can be obtained from witnesses that corroborates your depiction of the events and of the negligent party’s irresponsible acts or improper operation or maintenance of construction machinery. The following are a few of the negligent acts that can cause construction accidents and injure people:
- Failure to comply with proper safety standards
- Improper use of machinery by the operator
- Distracted machine operators
- Disregard of others in crowded urban environments
- Improper labeling of unsafe or hazard areas in a public setting
- Poor maintenance and repair of machinery
