Top Los Angeles Construction Accident Trial Lawyers

Construction companies have an obligation to eliminate potential hazards from worksites. However, despite safety regulations, accidents can still occur. In fact, each year construction site accidents injure or kill thousands of construction workers. Workplace accidents are covered under workers' compensation benefits. If these accidents are due to the negligence or carelessness of a third party, however, that party can be held liable for damages through a civil lawsuit.

When an accident occurs on a construction site the owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for unreasonable acts or failures to act or unsafe equipment (like tractors, scaffolding or guardrails). The general contractor and all subcontractors can be required to:

  • Provide a reasonably safe work environment for all workers on the site
  • Warn of existing hazards on-site
  • Hire responsible, careful employees
  • Coordinate safety at the construction site
Construction Accident Case Results
  • $888,888
    In 2003, we settled a case for $888,888 where Plaintiff was working on a construction project standing on a scaffold that tipped over. Plaintiff alleged that the contractor was not licensed and therefore the owner of the premises was liable. Plaintiff also alleged the scaffolding was defective. More details on this result can be found here.

    $1,050,000
    In 2006, we settled a case for $1,050,000 (Defendant's policy limits) where Plaintiff was working on a construction project and fell through an unguarded opening on the roof.

    $Confidential
    In 2012, our firm handled a case where a steel inspector fell from a beam. The inspector lost his memory and did not remember what happened. We alleged that the general contractor and sub-contractor were responsible for providing the steel inspector with safe access to perform his inspections.

    Defendants moved for summary judgment arguing that they were not liable to Plaintiff under the Privette Doctrine and because Plaintiff was solely responsible for safely performing his job. Arash successfully defeated Defendants' motion through effective depositions and creative legal arguments. The case then settled confidentially. You can read the Court's ruling here.

California Construction Injury Attorneys

Construction equipment manufacturers are responsible for creating safe, reliable products. With many critical pieces of equipment on the average construction site, it's not surprising that in many construction accidents, fault lies with an equipment manufacturer.

It is critical that your lawyer knows the unique issues presented by construction site accidents. This is a complicated area of law that mainly protects contractors and owners. These claims also implicate workers' compensation law and the employer's right to credit and lien claims against your potential recovery.

The Homampour Law Firm has successfully handled many construction site claims against owners, contractors, subcontractors and equipment manufacturers. We know this complex area of law and have successfully navigated cases where other attorneys have failed. We have routinely negotiated settlements with employers that have claims for millions of dollars in credits or liens that would ordinarily wipe out your third-party claim and where they accept pennies on the dollar.

The Homampour Law Firm has confidentially settled many other construction site claims for millions of dollars, including claims involving defective scaffolding, unprotected falls or openings, defective guardrails, defective tractors and other dangerous activities.
