Construction Site Accidents
Los Angeles Construction Accident Lawyers
We are Los Angeles construction accident lawyers who know that the improving economy and real estate market is leading to new construction throughout California. This means that many jobs are being created but it also means that financial interests can compromise safety. The combination of heavy equipment and great heights on a construction site can be a recipe for disaster. When unrealistic deadlines, negligence or poor safety standards are added to the mix, the result may be tragic. Construction site accidents occur with alarming frequency throughout California. If you or someone you love has been injured while on a construction site, the personal injury attorneys of Lederer & Nojima LLP may be able to help you obtain compensation and justice.
You may work for a large construction company, you may be an employee for a smaller sub-contractor or you may have been simply passing by a construction site. If you have been injured at a work site, you need experienced lawyers on your side. Massive insurers of the site, of the companies involved and of the equipment manufacturers may all resist offering compensation. We will be aggressive in our negotiations with them so that they do the right thing.

Pursuing all Sources of Compensation for Injured People
When a construction accident involves only an employer and an employee, workers' compensation may be the only source of financial relief for the injured worker. However, a thorough investigation of the causes and circumstances surrounding a construction site accident often reveals that another person or company also share responsibility for the accident.
For example, if you were employed by a contractor, the general contractor might be responsible for ensuring the safety of the whole construction site. Construction accidents often arise as the result of actions by unlicensed contractors or supervisors. Improper hiring, poor vetting or a failure to provide proper safety equipment may result in liability for someone other than your employer. Determining liability in these cases must be handled by an experienced law firm.
Following an injury, we can help you pursue compensation for your medical bills, injuries and lost wages, including long-term or short-term disability claims. We will work to ensure that you are fully compensated for the effect that these injuries will have on your life.
When the attorneys of Lederer & Nojima LLP take on a construction injury case, we bring in experts from the beginning. We rely upon doctors, injury specialists, equipment manufacturers and other authorities to provide the knowledge and support necessary to protect our clients' rights. These experts allow us to fully document the crucial factors of the accident, the injury, and the victim's long-term prospects.
