Santa Rosa Construction Accident Attorneys Protecting The Injured — We Offer Solutions, Not Surprises

Construction work is the fourth most dangerous job in California, often causing thousands of deaths and injuries annually. Still, Santa Rosa houses over 12,000 construction workers. But did you know that you’re eligible for compensation if you get injured at a work site? The first step to getting compensated is calling Arash Law’s Santa Rosa construction accident attorneys at (888) 488-1391. Allow us to evaluate your case for free and witness first-hand how we’ve won more than $500 million for our clients.

The California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) continuously regulates protocols to keep construction sites safe. Despite these regulations, dozens of construction workers are still injured on-site annually. These accidents are often caused by the company’s failure to provide safety gear. Nonetheless, personal injuries may also be the result of another employee’s negligence or poor implementation of safety procedures.

Do you think somebody else is at fault for your construction site injury? Have you lost your income since the accident? Did the injury make it difficult for you to look for another job? At Arash Law, led by Arash Khorsandi, Esq., we help victims get back on their feet. We fight for the maximum compensation you can receive for all the damages caused by the accident.

Know your rights. Stand for justice. Fill out our “Do I Have A Case?” form or call us at the number above so we can assess your situation.

Common Construction Site Accidents In Santa Rosa

Construction sites are avenues for all sorts of injuries, ranging from burns and broken bones to amputations and paralysis. The OSHA determined that most of these injuries are caused by four common types of accidents, dubbed the “Fatal Four” or “Focus Four.”

This is how frequently these accidents occur in construction sites:

Falls
Around 36.4%, or 1 in 3 deaths in the construction industry are caused by falls. The US recorded 991 construction deaths in 2019, and 401 of those were from slips and falls.
Struck By Object

Of the 991 construction deaths in 2019, 170 were from struck-by accidents, which account for 15.4% of the total fatalities. Vehicles are the most common object to cause struck-by accidents, accounting for 47% of all incidents of this type.

Electrocutions

Electrocutions at construction sites accounted for 7.2% of the total fatalities in 2019. Over half of these deaths were caused by direct contact with power lines or live electrical equipment.

Caught-In/Between

About 59, or 5.4% of construction deaths, were caused by caught-in/between incidents. Caught-in/between accidents are almost similar to struck-by accidents, except that the former is caused by the force of two opposing objects.

Common Violations In Santa Rosa Construction Sites That Lead To Accidents

Unfortunately, some victims of construction site incidents end up blaming themselves for their injuries. They think it’s their fault for slipping, falling, or not handling faulty machinery properly. That’s why talking to a Santa Rosa construction accident lawyer immediately is integral to any case.
Our lawyers recognize that employers must provide their workers with safety equipment to protect them from workplace hazards. Violating these protocols may award victims maximum compensation for their injuries.
Most construction site accidents are caused by the following violations:
Fall Protection Violations

In 2022, OSHA issued 5,260 citations for fall protection violations. Construction sites are required to cover floor holes, use guardrails near dangerous equipment, and keep floors clean and dry.

Respiratory Protection Violations

Construction site injuries aren’t limited to broken bones and cuts. Employers must also provide you with respiratory protection, especially if you work in hazardous conditions. Just last year, OSHA issued 2,185 citations to various worksites for this violation.

Ladder Violations
A ladder is one of the most used pieces of equipment on construction sites. Unfortunately, thousands of worksites still fail to meet OSHA standards for this tool. Your employer must provide you with a ladder that supports your weight, is stable, and is skid-resistant. If the absence of any of these led to your accident, you are entitled to compensation following an accident.
Eye And Face Protection Violations
Some accidents are unavoidable, and the only way to face them is to be prepared. Your employer must provide you with eye and face protective gear such as helmets and goggles. They must also be of a certain grade to withstand the hazards of construction sites.

Common Injuries Following A Construction Accident

Regardless of the circumstances, construction accidents often lead to all sorts of injuries. If you’re experiencing symptoms from any of the injuries below, call our experienced construction accident attorneys in Santa Rosa now.
  1. Burns – blistering, reddening, pain, and/or loss of skin
  2. Chemical Exposure – dizziness, nausea, nose bleed, headache, breathing difficulty, coughing, convulsion, and irritation of the throat, nose, or eyes
  3. Eye Injury – irritation, redness, bleeding, temporary/permanent loss of vision
  4. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – persistent headaches, dizziness, disorientation, loss of consciousness, fatigue, difficulty focusing, loss of balance, difficulty remembering
  5. Spinal Cord Injuries – paralysis (complete or in certain parts of the body), numbness, pain/pressure in the neck, back, or head, tingling sensation
  6. Neck and Back Injuries – can be a sudden change of posture, reduced motion, stiffness, weakness/pain in the neck, ribs, arms, legs, or fingers resulting from an accident
  7. Fractures – visibly misshapen limb, bleeding, bruising, swelling, numbness, tingling, immense pain because of the broken bone
  8. Sprains – joint or muscle pain, stiffness, swelling, discoloration of the skin, limited range of motion
  9. Cuts and Lacerations – injury-related open wounds

Types Of Construction Accident Claims Our Lawyers Handle

Suffering an injury at a construction site may change your life. Our Santa Rosa construction accident attorneys are here to get you back on track. Arash Law handles any construction-related claim, from workers’ compensation to wrongful death.
Depending on what transpired, our personal injury lawyers will help you pursue any of the following legal claims:

In Santa Rosa, you are immediately entitled to workers’ compensation if your injury was not caused by your own negligence. In some cases, victims may even collect benefits even if they are partially or fully responsible for the injury, as long as it occurred on the worksite.

While construction workers may file a claim of this nature individually, we still encourage them to talk to the skilled construction accident lawyers at Arash Law. This is to ensure that you are protected from retaliation, loss of job, or pressure to return to work immediately.

Our attorneys may also get you any or all of the following benefits included in the Workers’ Compensation law.

Medical Care
Payments for medical bills (physical therapy, medication, etc.) related to recovering from the injury.
Temporary Disability Benefits
Payments covering lost wages caused by incapacity or inability to come to work because of the injury.
Permanent Disability Benefits
Payments for construction workers who were unable to recover from the injury fully.
Supplemental Job Displacement Benefits
Payments or vouchers for skill enhancement, training, and/or retraining if an employee can’t return to work for extended periods.
Death Benefits
Payments are made to the victim’s children, spouse, or other dependents if the employee dies from an injury or illness sustained on the worksite.
Third-Party Personal Injury Claims
Our construction accident lawyers in Santa Rosa also handle third-party personal injury claims. These are for individuals other than the workers who suffered an injury at the construction site.
Did you get hit by falling debris? Were you burned while at the worksite after a piece of equipment caught fire? Did you suffer minor or major injuries following an explosion from a nearby construction project?

The skilled attorneys at Arash Law will help determine who’s responsible for your injury and build a case for you. We also help construction workers who wish to file a claim against a third-party entity, such as insurance companies, property owners, or subcontractors.

Construction workers regularly use all sorts of power tools and machinery on the job. Did you know that manufacturers may be held liable for your injuries if their products caused the accident? While product liability claims are different from personal injury cases, our lawyers can still hold manufacturers accountable for their negligence while making the product.
Wrongful Death Claims
Arash Khorsandi, Esq., and his team of compassionate lawyers at Arash Law understand that the pain of losing someone is immeasurable. However, they also know that legal compensation can reduce the financial struggles a family has to bear.
If you lost a loved one in a construction site accident due to other people’s negligence, pick up the phone and dial 888 (488)-1391. We’ll help you file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party.

Who Is Liable For Santa Rosa Construction Accidents?

Our Santa Rosa construction accident attorneys will help you determine who’s liable for your injury. Nonetheless, learning which parties may be held accountable can help victims step forward and determine if they have a case.
  • Construction Company – For injuries that occurred on the worksite or while conducting work-related activities. Remember that you may still be entitled to benefits and compensation, regardless if you’re partially or fully responsible.
  • Property Owner – For injuries suffered by guests due to the property owner’s negligence. Also, if the property owner retains significant control over the construction site, including access, work methods, and safety measures.
  • Product Manufacturer – For injuries suffered by workers due to malfunctioning or defective construction equipment.
  • Other Parties – Depending on the circumstances, other parties, such as architects, subcontractors, engineers, and other employees, may also be liable.
FAQs About Santa Rosa Construction Accident
Can I sue my employer if I got injured at a Santa Rosa construction site?
Unfortunately, construction workers cannot sue their employers for their injuries. They can, however, file for an injury claim under the workers’ compensation law. Additionally, more than one party can be liable for your injury. So, while you can’t file a lawsuit against your employer, you can present a different legal argument against other parties.
What if my workers’ compensation does not cover everything?
If the workers’ compensation does not cover all the damages, an injured victim may consult an attorney to settle the issue outside of court. Lawyers will employ alternative dispute resolution methods to reach a favorable settlement for both parties.
Can I file for death benefits and a wrongful death claim following a Santa Rosa construction accident?
Death benefits from the workers’ compensation law are different from a wrongful death claim. Therefore, a loved one can file for both claims, depending on the circumstances of the victim’s death. Finding experienced construction accident lawyers in Santa Rosa might be necessary if you wish to file for a death benefit and a wrongful death claim.
