Fighting for the Rights of Victims in Pasadena

Our Pasadena personal injury attorney pursues cases of negligence against construction companies and others. For over 25 years, Tedford & Associates in Pasadena has been representing victims of construction accidents in the San Gabriel Valley and throughout Los Angeles County. Our goal is to secure maximum compensation for our clients to cover present and future medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Who Can be Sued for Negligence in a Construction Accident Case?

A personal injury lawyer, uses appropriate resources to fully investigate your construction accident, whether you're a construction worker, an injured pedestrian or a surviving member of the victim's family.

Depending on the nature of the accident, our firm may initiate a claim against the following:

  • Property owners
  • Materials suppliers
  • Contractors and subcontractors
  • Construction companies
  • Equipment and machinery manufacturers

If a third party is involved, such as a contractor, subcontractor or landowner, we file a third-party claim against that person or entity. If your loved one died because of a construction accident, we can file a wrongful death claim.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

The construction industry must contend with "the fatal four," four causes of death resulting from construction accidents. These are falls, electrocution, being struck by an object and being caught in or between objects. OSHA reports that 35 percent of 738 construction deaths in 2011 resulted from falls.

The following conditions can contribute to construction accidents:

  • Falls
  • Electrocution from exposed wires or machinery
  • Unstable scaffolding and ladders
  • Unstable roofing
  • Explosions
  • Faulty equipment and machinery
  • Improper operation of forklifts and cranes
  • Falling objects
  • Violations of Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regulations
  • Improper lighting
  • Insufficient ventilation
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Trench collapses and cave-ins
  • Building collapses

Common Injuries Sustained in Construction Accidents

Working on a construction site or passing by one poses risks. Construction workers may be covered by their employers' workers' compensation insurance, but pedestrians are not. In these situations, general personal injury rules apply. Our civil litigation experience honed over the course of 25 years helps us get full and fair compensation for our clients, either through aggressive settlement negotiations or bringing the case to trial.

The following may result from a construction accident:

  • Death
  • Severed limbs, fingers and toes
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head, neck and back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of hearing
  • Loss of sight
