Hollywood Construction Accident Attorney
Representing Victims of Serious Injuries from Unsafe Work Sites
Construction sites are dangerous places, not simply for the workers, but for the general public as well. The potential for slips, falls and being struck by inherently dangerous objects, such as cranes, dump trucks, and a multitude of other heavy equipment present throughout any construction site. When an injury occurs due to the carelessness of another worker or by use of a defective product, the responsible party needs to be held accountable to enable the injured party to receive the compensation they deserve.
Get the Compensation You Deserve • 866-920-8376
If you were hurt in a construction accident, I can help. At my Century City, California law practice, the Law Office of Marvin S. Lanter, I hold negligent site owners, general and sub contractors and municipalities responsible for injuries. Backed by more than 35 years of experience as a personal injury lawyer, I aggressively seek maximum compensation for your suffering.
Taking Action Beyond Workers' Compensation
As a construction worker, you take standard safety precautions to maintain your well-being on the jobsite. However, sometimes these are not enough and serious injury, such as a significant fracture or herniated disc occurs. When construction accidents are caused by the reckless actions of a co-worker or company, you may be able to pursue a claim for civil damages in addition to your workers' compensation coverage.
Achieving Results for the Injured
A 55-year-old carpenter suffered serious head injuries when another construction worker swung a heavy wire cable. My client was knocked unconscious and suffered nerve damage in his right shoulder, arm and hand; loss of hearing in one ear; chronic debilitating headaches and psychological problems. We sued the subcontractor. After two mediations, we settled the case for $750,000.
Injured Near a Construction Zone? You May Have a Case
Construction workers are not the only victims of construction accidents. Ordinary people are often exposed to hazardous conditions without realizing the danger that exists. It is easy to trip over an unfinished curb or piece of debris while walking near a work zone. Many people are apt to attribute these types of accidents to their own carelessness, when, in fact, the resulting injury could have been avoided through responsible actions of the site supervisors.
