Construction Accident Lawyer in Stockton

Construction is a big business in Stockton and a key part of the local economy. Sadly, this profession comes with some risks, especially for workers in the industry. One BLS study on fatal work injuries in California has shown that the private construction industry sector had the most fatalities in 2021. At least 79 workers lost their lives at construction sites that year. 

Sadly, some of these accidents occur due to negligence, not natural causes. Whether or not negligence was a factor, you may still be able to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses. The amount of compensation and the pathway to obtaining it will depend on the specifics of your case, including your status at the construction site.

We know this sounds confusing, but you don’t have to figure everything out yourself. A Stockton construction accident attorney from our team can handle the legal processes on your behalf as you focus on recovering from your injuries or losses. But first things first, your case must have merit for you to be able to file a claim. Fill out our free case evaluation form today to determine whether someone owes you compensation and how to claim it.

Morgan & Morgan

  • When Do I Need To File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

    You can file a workers’ comp claim if you’re an employee who’s been injured at a construction site. You’ll need to file the claim as soon as possible after a construction accident to ensure you get the medical care and benefits you need. Note that there are specific deadlines for filing such claims. In California, for example, you have 30 days from the injury date to report the accident and only a year to file a claim.

  • When Can I File a Claim?

    Workers’ compensation claims are designed for on-the-job injuries. However, if someone other than your employer caused the accident, you could file a personal injury lawsuit against them. For example, let’s assume that a third party, like a contractor, is responsible for your injuries; a lawsuit could be an option. 

  • Can I File a Lawsuit Against My Employer if I’m Already Receiving Workers’ Comp Benefits?

    Not really. In California, you cannot sue your employer if you're receiving workers' comp benefits. Workers' compensation is designed to be the exclusive remedy for workplace injuries. Once you file a workers’ comp claim, you automatically waive your right to sue your employer. However, this rule is not written in stone; there are exceptions. Examples of such exceptions include cases involving intentional harm by your employer or if they failed to obtain workers’ compensation insurance.
