Morgan & Morgan
Can I Sue My Employer for a Construction Accident?
Suppose you sustained injuries at a construction site (as an employee) in Riverside. In that case, you may not be able to file a lawsuit against your employer directly due to California’s workers' compensation laws. However, if the injury resulted from intentional actions or gross negligence, you may be allowed to take legal action against your employer. Contacting us for a free case review can help you understand whether you have a viable claim and your options.
What Am I Entitled to if I Win the Case?
In a typical construction accident case, and where applicable, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, rehabilitation costs, and future medical costs related to the injury. However, the exact damages will depend on whether you’re filing a workers’ compensation claim or a standard lawsuit and how severe your injuries are.
Can My Employer Fire Me for Filing a Construction Accident Claim?
Employers cannot retaliate against employees for filing workers' compensation claims. Doing so is a violation of Federal and State labor and employment laws. If you believe you were wrongfully terminated due to filing a construction accident claim, contact us immediately. Our employer retaliation attorneys would be happy to fight for your rights.
What if the Accident Happened Due to Defective Equipment?
In that case, you might have a product liability claim against the manufacturer or distributor of the equipment. A construction accident lawyer can help establish liability and determine the best legal pathway to take.
What Evidence Do I Need To Prove My Case?
Because each case has its own uniqueness, there’s no standard evidence to prove that a construction accident occurred. That said, medical records detailing your injuries and treatment, eyewitness statements, photos or videos of the accident scene, and safety reports and records can help paint a picture of what really happened. They can also reveal if someone else’s negligence played a role.
