Safety should be of paramount importance at all construction sites. Still, construction sites are frequent causes of injuries and death in California. Even though construction sites are by their very nature a dangerous place to work, it doesn’t mean that contractors and project owners do not have a responsibility to keep their employees safe from harm. Unfortunately, worker safety fails to be the top priority for many construction companies.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, you should consult with an attorney to protect your legal rights. At the Nourmand Law Firm, our construction accident attorneys in Los Angeles will help you hold the right parties liable to obtain the compensation that you deserve.Common Causes of Construction Accidents
There are various ways to get injured at a construction site, even if you are a safety-conscious worker. The Nourmand Law Firm’s legal team has seen these accidents and we understand how to successfully handle the claims to obtain our clients full compensation.
Some of the most common causes of construction site accidents include:
- Scaffolding falls
- Burns and electrocution
- Motor vehicle collisions at job sites
- Crane accidents
- Trench accidents
- Chemical spills
- Falling materials, such as rock or debris
These accidents can result in serious injuries to the victims, including brain injuries, broken or fractured body parts and paralysis.

The medical costs to treat the serious injuries obtained in construction site accidents can be extensive, leaving victims and their families members financially strapped. This is one of the main reasons why we fight so hard for our clients to obtain the compensation that they deserve. Victims of construction site accidents may be entitled to compensation for various things, including:
- Past and future medical bills
- Loss of income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress, including post traumatic stress disorder
- Punitive damage, if possible
Depending on the specific facts, there can be a number of different parties who may be liable for the injuries sustained by construction accident victims. Although the majority of construction projects are based on general contract relationships, larger and more sophisticated projects can include a variety of different parties, including:
- Site’s landowner
- Design and engineering professionals
- Contractors, including general, “prime,” and “sub”-contractors
