About Construction Accidents

Our San Jose, California, attorneys can help clients hold negligent parties accountable for many types of construction accidents, including those involving:

  • Machinery defects;
  • Scaffolding falls;
  • Manufacturing defects; and
  • Safety device failures.

An equipment failure or machinery defect can be fatal. Many of these accidents would have been prevented had a responsible party followed his or her duties and taken appropriate safety precautions.

How We Help Injured Construction Workers

For many employees, workers’ compensation is the first source of recovery for a construction injury. But workers’ compensation is very restrictive to prevent fraud. Though the program is effective in preventing excessive claims against employers, it can also limit any further recovery from the employer for severely injured victims, even if the employer was grossly negligent. Fortunately, workers are able to file claims when parties other than the employer may have had a hand in the negligence causing the injury.

At Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., our attorneys investigate construction accidents to determine the cause and identify the responsible parties. We have successfully pursued claims against negligent subcontractors, scaffolding owners, property owners, equipment owners and manufacturers of safety valves and other equipment.
