If you look to the coast of the Pacific Ocean near the Mexican border in California, you will find the city of San Diego. According to the U.S. Census, it is the eighth most populated city in the country, with a 2020 population size of 1,386,932. This high population also makes San Diego the second-largest city in California. Sitting in San Diego County, the town is best known for its deep-water harbor, beaches, parks, and mild climate.

Construction sites are another well-known factor of living in San Diego. As the population grows, more roads and buildings should also spring up. Unfortunately, while construction can help the city evolve, it is also the cause of many accidents and injuries. Hundreds of accidents in construction sites harm workers and bystanders alike.
Multiple parties, including the construction company and equipment manufacturer, can be responsible for construction accidents. Construction companies can be liable if they fail to inspect the work site properly, comply with safety guidelines, or train employees. Equipment manufacturers are usually responsible if the tools are damaged or defective, and these defects contribute to the accident. The best construction accident lawyers in San Diego can sift through the rubble and find all negligent parties.

Types Of Construction Site Accidents

Many types of accidents can happen with so many construction sites around San Diego. Through experience, San Diego construction accident lawyers from Arash Law have seen accidents such as:
  • Car accidents during equipment or supply deliveries
  • Highway construction accidents
  • Negligent machines, tools, or debris storage
  • Falls from high floors, scaffolding, or roofs
  • Falling objects or equipment
  • Machinery accidents involving construction equipment
  • Defective equipment like saws, drills, or nail guns
  • Electrocutions from wires, voltage boxes, etc.
  • Bulldozer or excavator accidents
  • Heavy equipment or materials crushing or pinning victims
San Diego has been at the center of controversy for construction accidents. There have been several incidents where cranes collapsed suddenly. If a crane collapses, there is usually someone’s negligence to blame. As these incidents are preventable, someone must answer for their action or inaction. San Diego construction accident lawyers work with victims to pursue compensation from the negligent parties.

Common Causes Of Construction Accidents

Some of the most common causes of San Diego construction accidents are:
  • Falls and ladder incidents – Falls are common in many workplaces. According to OSHA, 37 percent of construction fatalities come from falls. While you might not think a fall is a big deal, it can be on a construction site. Falls can happen from ladders, scaffolding, and any elevated surface. Sometimes, they can occur from the cranes, forklifts, or other equipment.
  • Falling objects or debris – There are a lot of construction materials throughout the site. They must be adequately stored and secured. When they are not, it can lead to them falling on someone. Construction workers can suffer catastrophic injuries or die if materials fall on them.
  • Industrial accident – There are various industrial work sites in San Diego. Accidents can happen during construction, at warehouses, or in machinery plants. These cases are very complex.
  • Trench collapse – Sometimes, a trench is necessary for a construction site to flourish. However, excavation cave-ins are catastrophic. They result in about 100 fatalities annually. Hundreds of construction workers also suffer injuries.
  • Machinery accidents – These accidents usually lead to crushing incidents. OSHA often refers to them as “caught-in/between” incidents. They also report that 2.6 percent of construction fatalities happen from these instances. These fatal accidents can involve being hit by heavy objects, tools, and equipment. They may also involve being crushed by machinery.
  • Scaffolding incidents – The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 88 deaths from scaffolding incidents in 2001. Conversely, OSHA reports about 4,500 scaffolding accidents annually. Scaffolding accidents happen in several ways, including falls, unsecured scaffolding, etc.
  • Forklift accidents – Operating a forklift requires training and practice. An unlicensed or untrained forklift operator can put themselves and others on the job site in danger. Experienced drivers can also make costly mistakes, resulting in accidents. This equipment is sensitive, and it can roll over.
  • Electrocution and explosions – Wires allow tools to be plugged in and used. They must be secured to avoid electrocution. A person coming into contact with high voltage can lead to injury or death. OSHA reports that 8.9 percent of fatalities are attributed to electrical accidents.
  • Fires – The most common causes of accidents on San Diego construction sites are burns. There is an abundance of fire hazards like uncovered electrical lines. Construction workers are also constantly using flames and flammable objects throughout the day. These materials are necessary to complete job tasks.
Construction accidents can happen for many reasons. The above list is not all-inclusive. If you are unsure of who is responsible for causing your accident, you should get an investigation. San Diego construction accident lawyers from Arash Law can help investigate the cause of your construction accident and pursue compensation.

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law.

Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra

Potential Construction Accident Injuries

As you might imagine, construction accidents can result in severe injuries or death. Construction sites are busy places with many moving parts. There are dangerous tools, equipment, and different contractors. Some sites will have various crews working at once, which can lead to chaos. However, with so many crews, there are also multiple managers and supervisors to lead these teams. When supervisors fail, they can be responsible for any injuries that happen.
Making matters worse, the California construction industry is dealing with a worker shortage. This shortage presents a unique challenge, so there are incentives to recruit and retain workers. However, worker safety can be put on the back burner with many new hires and ongoing construction.
When you are in a construction accident, many injuries can occur. According to OSHA, the following situations commonly cause injuries and fatalities.

There are four leading causes of construction site injuries and deaths. One of those is falls. OSHA reports that out of 1,008 construction deaths in 2020, 351 were from falls. Often falls happen on:

  • Roofs
  • Ladders
  • Trenches
  • Scaffolding
  • Slip-and-falls
Caught In Or Between
This situation is part of the four fatal factors and involves the following:
  • Trench cave-ins
  • Crushed by shifting or rolling objects
  • Crushed between trucks for loading docks
  • Getting caught in machinery or equipment
  • Getting stuck between a hydraulic truck bed
Approximately 275 construction workers were killed during four years. Nearly 67 percent of construction workers died from being crushed by collapsing materials. Over 93 percent of these accidents were the result of equipment issues.
Blows To The Head
According to OSHA, another fatal four are falling objects that cause blows to the head. Often, these incidents happen when workers are struck by:
  • Vehicles
  • Heavy equipment
  • Masonry or concrete walls
  • Flying objects like materials or tools
Sadly, construction workers have the highest rate of blow to the head injuries nationwide.
Another fatal four for construction workers is electrocutions. For the latest year, electrocutions killed 166 workers, which equates to three workers dying weekly in electrocution. Many of these incidents are from touching a live wire. Essentially, electrocution can be fatal.
However, electrical shock is another potential injury you may suffer. There were nearly 1,900 construction workers who suffered non-fatal electrical shock injuries. Some of the most common electrical hazards on San Diego construction sites include:
  • Thermal contact burns
  • Electrical burns
  • Electric shock from electrical currents
  • Arc or flash burns
  • Falls from current exposure that results in loss of muscle control
Explosions and fires injure over 5,000 construction workers annually. Over 200 are killed in these types of accidents. The underlying causes of these incidents are:
  • Compressed gas
  • Chemical tanks
  • Blasting agents
  • Combustible liquids
  • Electrical malfunctions
  • Liquid petroleum gas
Over 1.1 million non-fatal burns required emergency room treatment during a nine-year period. Manufacturing, food service, and construction accidents are the main occupations that lead to burns. There has been a significant decline in burns from various industries except in construction.

Radiation burns make up 40 percent of all construction site burns. Electrical burns are the second most common burn type. Roofers in construction have the highest risk of burns, usually because of hot tar. Welders also have a high rate of burns. They typically result from welding flash burns that impact the eyes.

Crushing Incidents
These incidents are some of the most dangerous. Crush injuries can lead to the loss of limbs. Crush injury happens when there is continuous pressure on a body part. It can also occur upon prolonged pressure of the muscles. Amputations and other severe complications are prevalent. Some complications include tissue necrosis, crushing syndrome, and compartment syndrome. On construction sites, crushing accidents happen from:
  • Trench collapses
  • Heavy machinery
  • Falling objects that pin workers underneath them
  • Runover by vehicles
  • Run over by large equipment.
Injuries From Heavy Equipment
While there are many hazards on San Diego construction sites, heavy machinery is one of the biggest. Injuries may happen when equipment malfunctions. It is also possible when the equipment is defective or not maintained. Training is also essential to prevent these accidents. Heavy equipment accidents can involve:
  • Cranes
  • Forklifts
  • Excavators
  • Road graders
  • Front-loaders
  • Dump trucks
  • Cherry pickers
  • Bulldozers
  • Compactors
Sometimes, this machinery can cause rollover accidents. Other times, the equipment strikes people as they are backing up.
Traffic Collisions
Many vehicles are entering and leaving construction sites. Sometimes, construction sites are near roadways, another significant risk factor. Work zone collisions can happen from:
  • Closed shoulders
  • Uneven roadways
  • Traffic congestion
  • Changes in traffic flow
  • Workers on the road
  • Workers on the side of the road
  • Construction vehicles entering the roadway
California has the fifth-highest rate of fatal construction accidents involving highway construction sites. Nearly 123 workers are killed in road accidents near construction sites. Over 15 years, 1,844 construction workers were killed nationwide in construction accidents.
From 2011 to 2017, 60 percent of workers were killed by vehicles in work zones. The majority of these deaths were the result of passenger vehicles. Other vehicles that cause these accidents are semi-trucks, machinery, and dump trucks.
Scaffolding Accidents
You will see many scaffolds on construction sites. These present the most hazardous conditions for workers. Annually, scaffolding collapses lead to 60 deaths and 4,500 injuries. About 30 percent of construction workplace deaths involve scaffolding or ladders.

A BLS study reports that a quarter of scaffolding accidents involved workers without safety training. Additionally, 77 percent of scaffolds do not have guardrails. These guardrails are instrumental in preventing falls. Lack of guardrails is also an OSHA violation.

Other Types Of Construction Accidents
Other categories of construction accidents are prevalent as well and include:
  • Machine failure
  • Crane accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Open holes without signage, warnings, or fencing
  • Wall, roof, or column collapses
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Inadequate training

Any incidents on construction sites can lead to severe injuries or fatalities. The worst has happened. Workers and families are left broken after these incidents and think they have nowhere to turn. Trust Arash Law’s construction accident lawyers in San Diego to seek a settlement award from the negligent parties.

Compensation You May Recover For A Construction Accident

Severe injuries can require significant compensation to cover medical treatments and other losses. The best way to determine the damage you can recover is to speak to San Diego construction accident attorneys from Arash Law. We understand that you may want a quick resolution for your case. However, we advise against rushing to accept the first offer the insurance company sends.

Injuries may cause severe financial hardship, and that can lead to wanting a quick settlement.
However, the insurance company benefits when you settle fast. San Diego construction accident lawyers will keep fighting until we secure your best financial outcome. When calculating compensation, we will consider the following:

  • Current medical expenses – Often the most significant portion of your injury case, these expenses will add up quickly. The worse your injury, the more treatment you need and, therefore, your costs. You may likely have hospital bills, physical therapy, and medication expenses.
  • Future medical costs – If you suffer a permanent injury or disability, you may require ongoing treatment, future procedures, medications, etc. Insurance companies rarely consider these costs. However, with decades of experience handling construction accident cases, we consider all medical expenses you will incur.
  • Lost income – Often, injuries will lead to time off work. You may not even return to work in the same capacity once you reach maximum medical improvement. We must consider your lost income now and in the future. Future lost income is challenging to calculate but is essential to your compensation claim.
  • Pain and suffering – You can also recover non-economic damages. You may incur long-term pain and suffering, though eligibility will vary. Often, these losses will be calculated based on your injury severity.
Every case has different factors and losses to consider. No one can guarantee a payment. That said, working with construction accident lawyers in San Diego can certainly increase your chances of success.

Factors For A Legitimate Case

Often, when construction site accidents happen, victims are unsure if they have a legal claim. You need some critical components for a legitimate construction site accident claim in San Diego. These factors include:

  • Liability – Liability is the primary way to know if you have a valid claim. You must have a liable entity that caused your injuries. The party owed you a duty, breached it, and that led to causing your injuries. While it sounds simple, there are special rules for construction accidents. OSHA governs many of these rules, especially those concerning safety measures. These rules are typically imposed on the owners and operators of construction machines and worksites. These special requirements can complicate your recovery efforts.
  • Damages – Another critical element of a legitimate construction injury claim is damages. You may be eligible for past and future medical expenses, depending on circumstances. You can also seek other losses like pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, and income. Surviving family members can pursue wrongful death claims when a person dies in a construction accident.
  • Available compensation avenues – Another aspect of a construction case you must consider is whether the negligent party has the resources to pay for your losses. San Diego construction accident lawyers will review all relevant insurance policies. Some of the parties that construction accident claims usually involve include:

Every party on the list will likely try to avoid responsibility. If your claim has multiple parties involved, there is a chance they will try to blame each other so they do not have to pay. The negligent party often has an insurance company that will pay for your expenses, and these companies will work diligently to deny your claim. Skilled construction accident lawyers in San Diego can obtain a fair settlement.

Steps After A Construction Accident In San Diego

It can be confusing and traumatic after a construction site accident. You might not know what to do, but here are some critical actions to protect yourself. These steps include:

  • Inform your employer – It is vital to inform your employer about your injury. Do not wait until later to tell them of the incident, as waiting to report can hurt your injury claim. You have legal rights you must protect. There are also workers’ compensation policies that may cover your losses, which require you to report the injury immediately.
  • Get medical attention – Another significant step to take is to get medical attention. Go to the doctor immediately. You may need to visit the hospital directly if you suffer a severe injury. When you see a doctor, you must inform them that your injuries happened on a construction site. You should also tell them you were working. They need this information to ensure they file adequate reports for workers’ compensation claims.
  • Schedule a consultation with San Diego construction accident lawyers – To protect yourself, you must get an attorney involved quickly. The sooner you get legal representation from Arash Law, led by Arash Khorsandi, Esq., the better your recovery chances. We will review your legal options, whether it is from workers’ compensation or through another source.
There are other steps you will take after a construction accident. These are just the first ones. Once you retain legal representation, we will advise you on additional steps you can take. Do not hesitate to call our San Diego construction accident lawyers at (888) 488-1391.

Reasons You Should File A Personal Injury Claim For A Construction Accident

You might have to file a workers’ compensation claim when you suffer a workplace injury. Unfortunately, worker’s compensation can be insufficient to cover all your losses. You must cover your financial losses through other resources.

Workers’ compensation benefits cover specific expenses and losses. They usually cover primary medical treatment and a percent of lost income. Sometimes, employers do not carry workers’ compensation insurance, which can complicate your recovery options.
Sometimes, construction accident cases are classified as personal injury claims. This classification gives injury victims another option for recovering payment. You can recover more damages than you can in a workers comp claim.

However, only certain situations can trigger a personal injury claim. Some circumstances that may qualify for a personal injury claim include:

  • Third parties – Construction sites are full of different entities. Sometimes, a third party is responsible for your injuries. A typical example is when working on a roadside construction and a driver is negligent. They hit you, and you suffer injuries. In this instance, you can pursue compensation from the negligent driver.
  • Defective products – Construction workers use various types of machinery and tools. If one machine malfunctions, it can lead to injuries and death. If a defective product is the cause of your injuries, then a product manufacturer can be responsible. This approach can also apply if you are around toxic substances. In either of these situations, you can pursue compensation through a personal injury claim.
  • Employer’s intentional acts – Employers can be negligent. In worker’s compensation, you don’t have to prove employer negligence. That is the exchange for having workers comp. However, if your employer acted intentionally to cause harm, you can file a San Diego personal injury claim instead. A prime example is when the employer assaults you. Another situation is when they intentionally make you work in hazardous conditions. These and other situations can make you eligible to pursue compensation separate from workers’ compensation.

As you can tell, there are various ways that you can file a personal injury claim. When you discuss your construction injury with our San Diego personal injury attorneys, we will determine the best route for you to take.

Statute Of Limitations For Construction Accidents In California

When your construction accident case qualifies for personal injury actions, you have a limited amount of time. California has a deadline for all personal injury cases. The statute is two years from your injury date. If you discover your injury later, your timeline begins on the discovery date.

However, there are other deadlines you should consider. It is best to speak to San Diego construction accident lawyers from Arash Law to ensure you do not miss any vital deadlines.

Why Contacting San Diego Construction Accident Lawyers is Best?

In the best case scenario, when a construction worker suffers an injury, they will file a workers comp claim and get reimbursement. You will not worry that the claim will be denied. You will have your payment and move on from the situation. Sadly, workers’ compensation is a fallible system that is often stacked against the victims.
The first obstacle is that the insurance company can choose the doctor you see, which you may think is a benefit but is not. When you see the insurance company’s doctor, they determine your treatment and when you return to work. They can also determine your disability rating if it applies. As you can guess, the doctor will do what benefits the parties who pay them.
Another pitfall is the possibility that your workers’ compensation claim is denied. The insurer can blame another incident as the cause of your injury. They can say it was pre-existing or you do not need medical treatment. Other times, the insurer can say you do not need any time off.
When someone suffers a permanent disability, the worker’s comp process becomes even trickier. The basis will be your disability rating. The higher it is, the higher your claim. Since the insurance company can send you to their doctor, they have some influence over it. They can even say you can return to work with a permanent disability.

Construction Accident FAQs

Construction zones are hazardous places. Accidents that happen can be catastrophic and life-altering. OSHA reports that one in five fatalities per year occur in construction. When negligence is the cause of your construction accident, you deserve legal representation. You should speak to San Diego construction accident lawyers from Arash Law during an initial consultation. The following frequently asked questions may apply to your case.

What kinds of negligence happen in construction?
There are many ways that negligence can be present on a construction site. While accidents can happen within seconds, negligence is complex to determine. Nevertheless, your injuries can be eligible for workers comp benefits as a construction worker.

OSHA has various training, oversight, and regulations to protect construction workers. When managers or supervisors fail to follow OSHA regulations, they are negligent. Some of the most common OSHA violations include:

  • Improper eye or face protection and other improper PPE use
  • Preventable falls from ladders and scaffolding
  • Safety violations while using heavy machinery
While this list is short, there are many other violations. These are just the most common violations reported to OSHA. Many of these situations can result in severe injuries. Unfortunately, safety hazards can be a death sentence.
You should get legal representation whenever you suffer an injury from construction site negligence. Some parties can be negligent area supervisors, equipment manufacturers, maintenance crews, and coworkers. You must have a legal team that can decipher whose failure is to blame, as an injury may end your construction career.
Why do insurance adjusters pressure settling?
Insurance adjusters sometimes try to pressure injured workers into accepting a quick offer. Victims might think that the insurance company cares about them and wants to help. The real reason for the pressure to settle, however, is so you do not get San Diego construction accident attorneys.
Initial offers may sound substantial, but they usually are not. Early in the process, you are unsure of your medical needs. As you go through your medical treatment, you may notice that your bills are increasing. Therefore, you should wait to reach maximum medical improvement before you settle. You may also have to take time off work, which can further impact your financial state.
Don’t let the adjuster pressure you into a settlement before you are ready. They can seem friendly, compassionate, and like they want to help. The truth is insurance companies are a for-profit business. They don’t want to give you more money than they have to. Their first offer is usually their lowest one. Once you accept the offer, you lose your right to pursue additional compensation.
When you accept a settlement, you want one that covers all your losses now and in the future. To assess your case accurately, you should speak to our construction accident lawyers in San Diego. We know how the adjusters work and how they try to pressure injury victims during vulnerable times.
While we are ready to fight for you to trial, your claim will unlikely get that far. Most San Diego construction accident claims are resolved without the need for trial. However, we will prepare every case for trial from the beginning. So if we must go into litigation, then we are ready. There is no running around at the last minute trying to prepare.
What should you do if the adjuster pressures you into a settlement? The best thing you can do is refer them to your construction accident lawyers in San Diego. When you refer the insurer to us, they know we will not accept an unfair settlement. You also get peace of mind knowing someone is in your corner.

Are there steps I can take to help my construction accident case in San Diego?

While your construction accident attorneys in San Diego will handle most of your claim, there are ways you can help. Your main priority is to heal. Moreover, you can help by providing a statement about your construction incident. This statement will help your legal team better understand what happened and who might be responsible.
While in other personal injury cases, there is a police report, construction accidents rarely do. Without a police report, you might be at a disadvantage. Nevertheless, your statement can be critical to piecing your case together.
Another way you can help your case is by providing contact information for witnesses, such as coworkers and bystanders. You should not discuss your accident with them. Instead, your construction lawyer will handle all communications about your case. When your legal team reaches out to these parties, they will schedule interviews and depositions to get official statements.
Remember, you should not discuss your case with anyone. You may want to talk to your coworkers and friends about the incident. However, the less you say, the better. You can be putting your associates in a sticky situation. They can also be called to make statements in court about everything you share with them.
Site photos are also beneficial to your claim, as are medical records. This evidence can help push your case forward. It will show your damages and help your construction accident attorneys in San Diego craft an adequate approach.
Sometimes, injuries are too severe, and victims can’t help as much as they want. Do not fret. If you cannot gather any information, we will work diligently to get evidence that helps you. Protecting you and pursuing compensation are at the forefront of our minds.
Why is it crucial to speak to San Diego construction accident lawyers immediately?
The claims process can seem never-ending when you handle a case independently. You can be waiting an eternity for a settlement or jury decision. The sooner you start your claim, the better. You must also consider the statute of limitations that applies to your lawsuit. It is best to speak to San Diego construction accident lawyers so you meet all relevant deadlines.
You have two years to file a construction accident claim in California. Such a length of time can seem long, but it will pass quickly. Putting off speaking to an attorney is detrimental to your recovery. After the two years pass, you lose your legal options.
Aside from deadlines, you must also consider case strength. Evidence is fickle and can disappear. Witness memories can fade. You can face additional challenges as more time passes without taking legal action.
It is stressful to think about these actions when you are in pain. Your life is upside down, and your future is uncertain. You are busy with doctors’ appointments and medical treatments. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on your legal options.
Get legal assistance from Arash Law to protect your rights and focus on healing. We can handle the legal aspect of your construction injury.
What are my legal options if a loved one dies?
Surviving families can take legal action if their loved one dies in a construction accident by filing a wrongful death claim. Often, the parties eligible to file claims are spouses, children, and parents.

Many challenges come with losing a loved one. You are facing a significant emotional and financial loss. Preparing for a funeral is another challenge you encounter, and you do not need insurance companies trying to haggle with you at the same time. Damages in San Diego wrongful death claims vary from other cases and include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of companionship
  • Lost income and future earnings
  • Final medical expenses
Protect your best interest by speaking to a San Diego wrongful death attorney.
