Construction zones are typically places where accidents are waiting to happen. Strewn debris, malfunctioning safety devices, and the challenges associated with coordination of efforts of numerous subcontractors and delivery services contribute to hazardous working conditions. Workers are drawn by attractive pay, but are often pushed to perform beyond levels they can safely keep up day after day — which sometimes leads to inattention and carelessness. One person’s mistake can mean another person’s tragedy. Call the San Mateo construction accident lawyers of Galine, Fry, & Fitting at 650-345-8484 or contact us online today.

Contacting a Construction Accident Attorney
An effective construction site accident lawyer in San Mateo works hard to locate any and all sources of liability and responsibility after a building site injury. In many cases, workers’ compensation is not the only path to reimbursement for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Products liability may be a factor when faulty equipment causes a construction site accident. Subcontractors may be responsible — and when they are not the employers of the victim, their insurance may be the most logical source of compensation for the injured person.
