Recovering Compensation For Catastrophic Construction Injuries For Over 30 Years
Even with all the proper precautions and the right safety equipment, construction workers still run a high risk of injury.
I am attorney Scott M. Blumen, and at Scott M. Blumen, Attorney at Law, APC, I have been helping individuals recover for personal injury and workplace accidents for over 30 years. During that time, I have encountered nearly every type of construction accident injury. I can help you get the fair compensation that you need so that you can recover from your accident.
I often help workers recover from:
- Chemical spills
- Electric shock
- Crane accidents
- Falling material
- Scaffolding falls
Construction Site Injuries And Responsible Parties
Construction site injuries are often very different from other types of workplace injuries. In some cases, the injury is due to another party’s negligence. When this occurs, you can potentially recover workers’ compensation benefits and pursue compensation in what’s called a crossover claim.
Let’s say you were working high up on a scaffold. The scaffold collapses causing you to fall a great distance. You have injured your back and broken several bones that will require surgery, rehab and time off work. After a thorough investigation, your attorney determines that the scaffold was defective. As such, you can not only pursue your legal right to workers’ compensation benefits but also a third-party or crossover claim against the manufacturer of the scaffold.
In these circumstances, it is important to hire an attorney who has knowledge handling both areas of law.
As a Certified Legal Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law by The State Bar of California coupled with three decades of personal injury experience, I am confident in my ability to help get you the compensation you need.
