ORANGE COUNTY CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Experienced Attorneys Since 1984
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are an average of 800 fatal construction accidents nationally each year. At the same time, four percent of all construction workers suffer injuries annually; that is thousands of men and women hurt on the job. It can be difficult to wrap your head around these upsetting statistics, but at Russell & Lazarus, we understand that each injured construction worker has serious concerns about his or her health, finances, and family in the wake of an accident.
If you are a construction worker who has been seriously injured in an on-the-job accident, it is critical that you know your legal rights, understand your case, and have an Orange County Construction Accident Attorney on your side, who will make certain you get what you deserve.
Construction accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, including traumatic head injuries, back and spine injuries, lacerations, amputations, and broken bones. Many of these injures can result in the inability to work, long-term disabilities, and a seemingly unending steam of medical bills.

- Construction site falls and falling objects
- Ladder accidents

Perhaps the most important step you can take following a construction accident, besides seeking the medical care you need, is to truly understand what caused your accident and who should be responsible for the consequences. A free evaluation at Russell & Lazarus is your opportunity to speak openly with an experienced Orange County construction accident attorney and get the important questions answered:
- Who is responsible for my medical bills and lost wages?
- How will I support myself and my family while I recover from my injuries?
- Can I receive California workers’ compensation in addition to filing a claim?
- Could a third party other than my employer be responsible for my injury—like a contractor, equipment manufacturer or property owner?
- What should I do if my construction accident was caused by someone else’s negligence?
- What if my construction accident was caused by unsafe conditions?
- What should I do if my construction accident prevents me from working in the future?
- How long do I have to file a lawsuit following a California construction accident?
- How much does it cost to hire an Orange County construction accident lawyer?
A construction accident and injury can have a huge impact on your daily life, your career, and your finances. A serious injury could leave you with chronic pain, disabilities, and ongoing medical needs. At the same time, an injury could mean weeks, months, or years without returning to work and without the means to earn a living. It is only fair that the people, companies, and entities that are at fault for your accident take responsibility for damages.
