Construction Injuries: Los Angeles & Nationwide
Construction remains one of the most dangerous industries for workers. Construction sites are dangerous not only for construction workers but for other people who happen to be nearby as well. Whether you are driving through or walking past a construction site, you could be caught in the crossfire of some industrial accident. Even something as innocuous as a dropped wrench can lead to serious injury or worse. Many construction sites are not operated in compliance with all appropriate safety regulations, creating hazards for workers and everyone else around.

Who is Liable After a Construction Accident?
Construction accidents can present complicated questions of liability. Often, one party will own the land, another party will be hired to do the construction, and additional parties may be hired on to perform specific tasks. Each party has its own insurance coverage, with restrictions and limitations. In order to maximize your compensation after a construction site accident, it’s important to know who was involved and to make sure that all relevant parties are included in your claims process.
At Morris Law Firm, we know how the construction industry works, and we know how to ensure that all relevant parties are covered by your claims. We’ll hold responsible property owners, contractors, sub-contractors, drivers, insurance providers, and anyone else who should be liable for the damages you have suffered. We leave no stone unturned so that you are eligible to receive the maximum compensation possible.
