At the law offices of Smolich and Smolich, our Sacramento construction accident attorneys have more than 40 years of experience representing victims of all types of construction site accidents, and are well-prepared to effectively handle your case. We take action on behalf of construction workers who have suffered head injuries, back, neck, shoulder and knee injuries, repetitive trauma injuries, and more.

The Most Common Construction Site Injuries

Any occupation can be potentially dangerous when employers do not provide a safe work environment or workers are careless. Regardless of the cause, however, workplace injuries are almost always covered by workers' compensation insurance. Although injuries can occur while performing any type of job, some jobs are inherently more hazardous than others. Construction site jobs, for example, are quite physical and often require the use of dangerous machinery. If you were working on a construction site and suffered an injury while performing your duties, you need to obtain the assistance an experienced workers' compensation attorney.

Here are some of the most frequently sustained construction site injuries:

  • Fall-Related Injuries on Construction Sites: Workers on construction sites tend to work from great heights, atop buildings, scaffolding, or large pieces of machinery. Such accidents can result in a number of different injuries, including broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, or even death.
  • Trench Collapse: Risks and Injuries: Construction site workers sometimes work in trenches and, in the event of a collapse, the worker's air supply might be cut off, or he or she might sustain crushing injuries that can potentially be fatal.
  • Electrical Hazards and Shock Injuries: Lots of power tools and machinery is necessary to perform construction work and working with this type of equipment regularly puts workers at risk for severe electrical burns that affect the nerves.
  • Repetitive Motion Injuries in Construction Work: When we think of repetitive motion injuries, we tend to think of office work, but even construction site workers can sustain these types of injuries. Bending, lifting, and performing the same physical tasks over and over again can cause a worker's muscles and soft tissues to become damaged and worn out, which can lead to debilitating pain that puts an employee out of work for an indefinite amount of time.
  • Chemical Exposure: Illnesses and Injuries on Site: Construction sites are sometimes rife with hazardous substances and chemicals, which can result in illness or injury when a worker is exposed to it.

Additionally, when workers do not wear protective gear, such as hardhats, safety goggles, or other forms of protective gear, a myriad of severe injuries can occur. Some of the most severe injuries that are frequently sustained in the absence of appropriate protective equipment include eye injuries and brain injuries, which can both result in permanent disabilities.

  • "Thank you Sarah and team!"
    I needed to apply for disability and knew nothing about how to go about it. Sarah called me and explained the process and assured me everything would be okay. Her staff went online to fill out my application. She and Marlena kept me updated every step of the way. Within a short time a decision was made in my favor. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I had prior to meeting with the team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs help in this area. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you I could have never done this.

  • "Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!"
    Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!

  • "I am so happy to have such knowledgeable and helpful people to help during this difficult time. Sam was super responsive and always willing to answer questions, regardless how big or small."
    My circumstances were a bit unusual - my husband applied for Social Security Disability, but unfortunately passed away during the review process. Sam and Sarah worked diligently to see the case through to the end, and provide our family the benefits we were owed. A special thank you to Sam, he was always very responsive, willing to go above and beyond, and willing to answer questions whether big or small. Thank you, Smolich and Smolich!
    Smolich and Smolich is so helpful!

  • "You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process."
    I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.
