Compensation For Workers And Others Injured At Construction Sites

Construction sites are often dangerous places full of hazardous materials, heavy machinery and unstable structures. The opportunity for injury is great. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction zone, you have rights.

At The Law Offices of Hiepler & Hiepler, we help construction site accident victims throughout California hold reckless and negligent parties liable for their actions and recover the compensation they need to heal. Each of our attorneys has more than a decade of legal experience and a track record of success. We demand insurance companies pay what is fair and will not let them take advantage of our clients.

Our Verdicts And Settlements

We are results-oriented with a history of success at trial.  Our past verdicts and settlements include:

  • $89.3 Million — Bad faith insurance practices — Riverside Superior Court
  • $23.9 Million — Spinal cord injury — Los Angeles Superior Court
  • $12.5 Million — Wrongful death, bicyclist struck by automobile — Ventura Superior Court, Simi Valley
  • $11.75 Million — Wrongful death & personal injury, Metrolink train crash — Los Angeles Superior Court
  • $1.7 Million — Construction site accident, fall and brain injury — Santa Barbara Superior Court

Our reputation as aggressive litigators serves our clients well. Because insurance companies know we are ready for a fight, they often offer more beneficial settlement offers that make litigation unnecessary.

Do You Have A Construction Accident Claim?

Many people believe workers’ compensation is their only path to recovery. This is not always the case. If you were injured due to the negligence or recklessness of a contractor, developer, subcontractor, architect, engineer or other worker who is not your co-worker or employer, you can pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

How Were You Injured?

Construction workers are not the only people injured on construction sites. Every day citizens and pedestrians are also often hurt by dangerous construction conditions.

  • Failure to warn of open holes or other dangerous conditions
  • Roof and scaffolding collapses
  • Falling debris
  • Exposure to toxic or hazardous chemicals and materials
  • Wet or slick surfaces

After being injured on a construction site, many people are forced to miss work while treating their injuries. No work means no paycheck. When injuries are severe, many workers are unable to return to their former employment. When paired with large medical expenses, lost wages and reduced earning capacity can make it hard to support your family. At Hiepler & Hiepler, we can help.
