What Causes Most Construction Accidents in San Diego, CA?

Every year, thousands of construction workers are injured on construction sites in San Diego and across the state of California. Dozens of killed. In fact, construction is one of the state’s most dangerous industries, accounting for nearly 15 percent of all worker fatalities in 2022.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there are four primary causes of construction fatalities. Known as the “Fatal Four,” these include falls, electrocution, being struck by an object, and being caught/in between objects.

Am I Covered By Workers’ Compensation If I’m Injured While Working in Construction?

Most likely, yes. California requires almost all employers to carry workers’ compensation, particularly employers in the construction industry. 

You can qualify for benefits as long as you’re an employee whose injuries were sustained while you were performing work-related tasks or responsibilities. Construction accidents usually fit the bill.

While workers’ compensation can be a lifeline for you as you recover, benefits are limited in scope and duration. In order to recoup all of your damages, it will be important to explore other legal options. This can include filing a construction accident lawsuit against a negligent or otherwise liable party.

Liability might extend to a property owner, an architect, an engineer, a co-worker, or a manufacturer. If you’re covered by workers’ compensation, you typically won’t be able to seek additional damages from your employer.

Through a lawsuit, you can recover economic damages and non-economic damages for:

You’ll only have a limited time to seek compensation for your construction accident injuries or loved one’s wrongful death. Workers’ compensation claims are subject to a one-year statute of limitations, and traditional personal injury lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of your construction accident or loved one’s death.
