California Construction Accident Lawyer

Falls From Scaffolding and Other Elevated Heights

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, do not assume that your only option for financial recovery is California's workers' compensation system.

At Gibbs & Fuerst, LLP, we'll explain your legal rights and options, prepare you for what to expect at each stage of the process and make certain that you have the information you need to make the sound legal decisions necessary to move forward. We practice in Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties and we have had extensive experience with claims involving scaffolding falls and similar types of construction site accidents.

A significant portion of the more than 75 years of combined experience our law firm has to offer has involved defending personal injury litigation. In practical terms, this benefits our clients because we know what strategies and tactics the defense will likely use and we can better prepare ourselves to counter those efforts in advance.

Obtaining the Compensation You Deserve

Falls from elevated heights on roofs, scaffolding, ladders or open structures often produce very serious injuries. Our attorneys work with medical specialists, life care planners and other experts as needed to ensure that we seek appropriate compensation for our clients.

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries (paralysis)
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Multiple severe fractures
  • Internal injuries

We also work with your workers' compensation lawyer to make sure that your work injury claim and your personal injury claim are handled concurrently. If you would like, we can provide referrals to workers' compensation lawyers in your area as well.
