In cases involving construction place accidents, it is important to figure out who is responsible for the injury the client sustained. If the client is injured by his employer or because of the employer’s negligence, the injuries would be covered under worker’s compensation. But, if the injury was caused by a subcontractor or another party involved in the construction site that the injured person is not employed by, a suit can be brought against the third party to recover for injuries sustained in the accident.
I had a case at the water treatment plant here in Los Angeles where my client, who was employed by the electric company, was running electric cable in the basement area of a new building with rather poor lighting. At the same time as my client was working in the basement, there was another contractor who was cutting plumbing pipe and using oil to lubricate the cutting machinery. While my client was pulling some cable, he slipped on some spilled oil and sustained a debilitating knee injury. The injury required surgery and prevented my client from working for over a year. Typically, this is the type of situation where a person usually goes on disability, but disability doesn’t pay very much and does nothing to address other expenses incurred as a result of the injury. In these cases, we make sure to obtain a substantial enough settlement to cover any surgeries, loss of wages, and perhaps most importantly sustained disability that might prevent them from fully functioning in the future or force them to drastically change their way of life or source of income. In this particular case we were able to collect from both the water treatment plant and the plumbing company without even going to trial.
