Working in construction can be a dangerous job, even when all safety protocols are followed. If you are injured on the job, you may be out of work temporarily, or permanently, depending on the severity of your injuries.
Workers’ compensation is there to help you get better and back to work. However, many employers and their insurance carriers fail to cover the full extent of injuries to their workers or deny their claims. An experienced Santa Barbara construction accident attorney can help you get all of the benefits you are entitled to when you’ve been injured on the job.
At Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld, we have more than 60 years of experience and dedication to helping injured workers. Our focus is solely on helping the individual, not the employer or insurance company. We leave no stone unturned as we seek the maximum compensation available in your case.
Construction accidents can range from simple repetitive stress injuries to catastrophic injuries. Because of this, we look at every possibility for maximum recovery in your case. Not only do we help you with your workers’ compensation claim, we also look at every aspect of your accident. If your injury was caused by a third party, such as a subcontractor, or machine or parts manufacturer, and that party can be held accountable, we can file a personal injury claim on your behalf.
Our firm has lawyers who are board certified for workers’ compensation. We have handled many different types of construction site accidents, including:
If you have lost a loved one to a construction accident, we also handle death claims and can help you obtain benefits for you and your family.
