Berkeley Construction Accident Lawyer
Workers' Compensation and Third Party Injury Claims
Construction accidents occur every day throughout the country, and the Berkeley area is no exception. Construction is one of the most dangerous of all professions, even when the firm involved has carefully followed all safety regulations. In some cases, safety measures have not been correctly implemented, putting innocent workers in even greater danger of serious injuries. The types of accidents that are common include scaffolding falls, trench collapses, ladder falls, falling tools or equipment, electrocution accidents, explosions, equipment failures and many others, all of which can lead to permanent injuries or death. Any construction accident injury claim should be addressed by a professional Berkeley personal injury lawyer from Clancy & Diaz, LLP.

In many cases, a full review of the circumstances surrounding the injury allows us to identify third parties that have liability, such as equipment manufacturers or other firms that have provided services to the site. When a third party has liability, we will file a claim against them to pursue compensation beyond what can be recovered through workers' compensation benefits. Every case is unique and requires a full evaluation to determine how to best proceed legally, and how to protect the rights of the injured to the compensation they deserve, whether through workers' comp or through a third party claim. This is particularly crucial in cases of catastrophic injuries.
