Legal Remedies For Injured Construction Workers

Construction work is among the most dangerous occupations for American workers, with millions of injuries and illnesses reported each year. When these hard-working people are hurt and can't work, we're there to help them get back on their feet.

At the Law Office of Ronald M. Stein, Attorney at Law, workers' compensation for construction workers is a significant part of our legal practice. We believe that workers deserve to get the care they need when they are injured on the job. We put in the work to fight for these claims, so our clients can focus on healing.

Causes Of Injury In Construction

Workers in both residential and commercial construction are at high risk for injury. Whether a structure is brand new or a remodel, safe equipment and site conditions are incredibly important for California construction workers.

If you have sustained any of the injuries below, contact a workers' compensation lawyer to learn how you could be compensated for medical costs and lost wages.

Falls

Many of the most common injuries sustained on construction sites stem from falls. People working in construction are constantly at risk of falling from dangerous heights, including falling from a roof, crane, ladder or scaffolding.

Heavy Machinery

Defective equipment and inadequate safety procedures cause numerous injuries to construction workers every year. We have helped clients who were struck by heavy machinery as well as injured by equipment that malfunctioned.

Repetitive Motion

Workers in construction are also at high risk of developing repetitive stress conditions, injuries to muscles and tendons from performing the same motion over and over. This overuse can lead to serious joint and muscle damage.

Falling Objects

Building materials or equipment dropped on a job site often cause serious head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
