While risks on the job vary from industry to industry, those employed in the construction sector face a greater degree of risk on a day-to-day basis.
Construction sites in California are considered some of the most dangerous working conditions in the country. Every day, builders and subcontractors face high-level risks, with an estimated 10% of all construction workers suffering some type of on-the-job injury each year.
Although most cases see injured workers receive workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical treatment and lost earnings, most families do not anticipate the wage benefits not being enough to cover the full financial damages.
In the state of California, injured construction workers who collect workers’ compensation benefits are not entitled to pursue further compensation from their employer. However, if the injured can prove that another party, aside from the employer, is responsible for the accident and injuries, the injured may sue for to receive additional financial damages and for the full cost of medical care.
