Construction Site Accidents

Construction workers are exposed to numerous hazards on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the amount of accidents that take place continue to increase as falls, strike-bys, caught-betweens, and electrocutions claim thousands of victims. Claims or lawsuits arising from injuries that result from construction accidents can also be especially difficult to litigate, since the involvement of multiple parties on a single construction project can make it hard to determine who is responsible for a construction accident injury.

Most Common Causes of Construction Accident Injuries:

+ Falls: Workers may fall from the structure to the ground, fall between floors, or fall from the building’s scaffolding, ladders, cherry pickers, or other high equipment.
+ Falling objects: Dropped tools or unsecure equipment may hit someone and cause serve damage.
+ Strike-bys: This refers to incidents involving someone being struck by an object, such as unsecure equipment, beams, and tools.
+ Caught between: This refers to when someone is caught in between objects such as a walls, trucks, and collapsing structures.

Keep track of all your medical expenses, including hospital bills, ambulance bills, paramedic bills, insurance claims, and any other costs related to your accident and medical treatment.


Write down the details of what took place. Take photos of the scene of the accident and any visual injuries you have, such as bruising. It is possible for injuries to develop gradually as well, so remember to keep track of when symptoms start. Additionally, obtain contact information from all witnesses.

My employer does not carry worker’s compensation insurance. What can I do?

Under the law, if your employer does not carry worker’s compensation insurance you have an option of:

1) filing a personal injury lawsuit against your employer; or

2) filing a workers’ comp claim with your state’s uninsured employer’s fund.

What are the statute of limitations in a construction accident case?

Generally, a person injured at a construction site or the family of a person killed in a construction accident has two years from the date of the accident to pursue a case.

What information do you need from me in order to get started?

To get started, we will ask for certain basic information in all cases such as your: name, phone number, email address, physical address, employer information, a chronology of relevant facts giving rise to your matter, physical injuries, lists of potential witnesses, photographs or video evidence, and all important documents.

How can a construction accident attorney help me with my case?

At Coria Law, we prioritize treatment of our clients because it is important that all injuries are addressed and cared for properly. Our office works with many medical doctors and facilities across Southern California. With the resources we have, we are able to get you into all types of medical treatment needed right away.

Secondly, we take on the responsibility of obtaining compensation from the responsible party. Many insurance companies and at-fault parties will low-ball victims without attorneys. Surprisingly, many people take those offers because they do not fully know what their case/situation is worth. An attorney would be able to evaluate your case and fight for a fair compensation.

How much does an attorney charge for their services?

At Coria Law, we work on a contingency basis. Thus, if we don’t win, you don’t pay! This is provided to all of our clients in writing upon them hiring our firm.
