Murrieta Construction Site Accident Lawyers
Obtaining Full Compensation for
Construction Site Accident Victims
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. While you can expect California's workers' compensation system to cover your medical expenses, under the same system you will recover only a portion of the wages you normally earn. What you may not know is that filing a workers' compensation claim might not be your only option for financial recovery.
What other options are there? If the negligence of someone other than your own employer or a coworker played a role in your accident, you may have the legal right to pursue full compensation in a personal injury claim against the responsible third party.
In Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties, you can find the experienced legal help it takes to succeed with this type of claim at the law firm of Gibbs & Fuerst, LLP
Prompt investigation and prompt legal representation are important after a construction site accident. Our attorneys will act quickly to protect you and preserve critical evidence that might otherwise be lost or altered by conditions or activities at the job site.
Experience Makes a Difference
As a group, our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined trial experience to draw from in handling your case. A significant portion of that experience has been gained in defending personal injury litigation. We mention this because we believe that our ability to anticipate the arguments and strategies the defense will likely use enables us to be more effective advocates for our clients.
Our experience with construction-related accidents includes:
- Scaffolding falls
- Falls from unsecured ladders
- Heavy equipment accidents

- Accidents involving poorly maintained equipment
