Accidents and injuries at the workplace are a common occurrence, even in industries that do not involve heavy equipment or machinery. Virtually any employee may be at risk of injury in a workplace accident at one point or another, whether this is at a construction site or in an office. At Pacific Attorney Group, our experienced attorneys assist workers throughout the greater Los Angeles area with workers' compensation claims and any legal action related to workplace accidents. Your initial consultation with our firm is free, and we handle all cases of this kind, including:
The construction industry is one of the most dangerous in the entire industry, with workers suffering serious injuries from working from heights and working around heavy machinery. This, however, doesn't mean that an injury should be brushed off. If you were involved in a construction accident, we can help. Call today.
If you fell from a ladder while working, you likely have grounds to file claim. No matter whether your employer caused unsafe working environment, if the ladder was defective in some manner or even if you are just seeking benefits under workers' compensation, we can help you to demand justice.
A common feature at most construction jobsites, the forklift can be used in a manner of ways to get the job done. When used unsafely (for example, lifting a person to a height), it can be the cause of severe injuries and even wrongful deaths. Get our firm involved and let us fight for you!
Many workers are injured while working on scaffolding. When working from heights, they can become severely injured if the scaffolding is not established correctly or if they are otherwise put into a dangerous situation. Our firm can step up to help you fight for maximum compensation.
No matter whether you work on a construction site or at a retail store, you are always vulnerable to the possibility of a falling object. If an improperly stored object or a disregard for safety features caused a serious injury, then you could have grounds to file a claim and our firm could help.
Many workers rely on the usage of different machines to help them carry out the necessary job duties. If this machine was defective, no matter whether in design or manufacture, it can be the cause of catastrophic accidents. This could be anything from a crane to a backhoe, dumper or even a bulldozer.
Many workers can find themselves exposed to electrical units during the course of their employment. Should loose wiring or a defective piece of machinery cause them an electrocution, the results can be catastrophic, causing an irregular heartbeat and sometimes causing the heart to cease beating altogether.
There is almost nothing more catastrophic than suffering from an explosion. One singular explosion can be the cause of catastrophic injury and death to countless workers and visitors, as well as anyone in the near vicinity. If you were victimized by something of this nature, do not wait – get the help you need today.
No matter the exact nature of your injury or the accident that you were involved with, you can trust that we will go above and beyond in our efforts to helping you fight for maximum compensation. Call today to schedule your initial case consultation.
Recovering Money After a Workplace Accident
In the wake of a workplace accident, some workers are surprised to find that their employer hesitates or is not entirely ethical in addressing the incident. A workers' compensation claim may not be taken seriously, or an injured worker may lose an opportunity to bring a claim or lawsuit against a third party that may have been involved in causing the accident. The best way to ensure your interests are properly represented is to involve an experienced workplace accident attorney who can handle all aspects of your case while you focus on recovery.
What is your claim worth? No two workplace accident claims are the same, and therefore the amount of money that you may be able to recover will vary widely depending on the nature and extent of injuries as well as whether allegations are made that you were under the influence of alcohol or drugs (which may limit your ability to recover workers' compensation benefits). The involvement of a third party, such as a visitor to the site or a manufacturer that distributed a defective product, may also impact your case and what amount of damages you are able to recover.
