Whether you work in construction or walk by a construction zone, these areas can be hazardous. Despite the assumption of risk those in and around construction sites take, if someone neglects their duty to act safely and carefully on a construction site, they may be liable for any resulting injuries. If you have been hurt in a construction accident due to another party’s carelessness, our trusted lawyers at Callahan & Blaine are here to help.

Many construction accident claims involve major companies and high values, making them complex and intricate. Our robust team of 29 lawyers all have at least eight years of experience handling these types of claims, so you can rely on us to handle yours with the utmost diligence and professionalism.

Who May Be Liable for a Construction Accident in San Diego?

Several factors contribute to a safe construction site, so it can be challenging to know whose negligence caused the incident when an accident and injuries occur. Our detailed lawyers conduct a thorough investigation to identify a liable party, which may include one or more of the following:

  • Construction Company: The construction company in charge of the site is responsible for keeping the area safe, so if they fail to do so or do not warn those on the site of potential dangers, they may be liable for injuries.
  • Employee: If an employee on the construction site operates machinery recklessly or acts negligently, they could be held accountable for an accident.
  • Property Owner: In some cases, property owners are in charge of construction sites. They may be responsible for injuries if they fail to maintain safe working conditions.
  • Manufacturer: An equipment manufacturer may be liable for a construction accident if a defective part is the direct cause.
  • Architect or Engineer: If a construction site is poorly designed or the building design is defective, the architect or engineering firm may be held accountable for injuries.

We gather evidence, such as medical bills, video footage, witness testimony, and maintenance records, to prove the liable party owed you a duty of care, neglected this duty, and directly caused the accident and your injuries. This information helps us build a strong claim that gives you the best chance of achieving maximum compensation.

What Damages May You Recover After a California Construction Accident? 

With the heavy machinery and dangerous equipment on a construction site, injuries sustained in these areas are often serious and require extensive treatment. However, you should not have to worry about paying your medical bills for harm caused by another party. With the help of our dedicated lawyers, you may recover damages for your losses, which may include the following:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Ambulance ride
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation or physical therapy
  • Home modifications
  • Caregiving
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Disability
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

In many construction accident claims, multiple parties, including the injured victim, share responsibility. If this is the case for you, you may still collect damages with California’s pure comparative negligence rule. With this system, everyone involved in your case is assigned a percentage of fault, which is deducted from their respective compensation. 

For example, if you are 20% at fault for a construction accident, your damages will be reduced by 20%. Our knowledgeable attorneys understand this rule and ensure you receive a fair fault percentage and settlement if you are partially responsible for the construction accident.
