Falls from Heights

Falls from Heights in Los Angeles

A Leading Cause of Injury Among Construction Workers

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls from heights are among the four leading causes of death in the construction industry, or the “Fatal Four Hazards.” Sadly, about 1 in every 3 fatalities that occur on construction sites can be attributed to such falls. These statistics are particularly harrowing because most falls from heights are preventable.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a fall at a construction site, we are here to help. Our Los Angeles injury attorneys at Biren Law Group have what it takes to go to bat for you. We are known for our tenacious representation, through which we have recovered over half a billion dollars in client compensation. Let our seasoned attorneys advocate for you and your family!

Call our Los Angeles construction accident attorneys at (310) 896-4345 to book your no-cost, no-obligation consultation.

When Hazardous Workplaces Lead to Falls from Heights

There are two ways to seek justice and compensation after a fall from heights:

  • File a workers’ compensation claim: In California, employees are barred from suing their employers and, instead, must file a claim with workers’ compensation insurance. This applies to individuals seeking death benefits after being bereft of their loved ones by a fall at the decedent’s workplace.
  • File a third-party personal injury lawsuit: If you were injured as a passerby or a visitor at a job site, you may have the right to seek compensation through a civil lawsuit. Construction workers injured due to the negligence of a third party (not their employer) may also be eligible to go down this route.

To find out which path you qualify to take, reach out to our lawyers at Biren Law Group. We can discuss your rights in a free consultation. It is our goal to help you find and follow the best course of action for your case.
