Protecting Your Right to Compensation – Call (800) 900-0863

Employed in one of the most dangerous industries in the United States, construction workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits when injured on the job. It is important to inform your supervisor as soon as possible after an incident in order to strengthen your injury claim. The filing process can be complex, but our attorneys at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP can help you from start to finish.

We have more than 100 collective years of experience guiding injured construction workers through the paperwork and procedures necessary to receive their rightful financial coverage for all of the following:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Disability benefits

If your legitimate workers' compensation claim is denied or delayed, we can help you appeal the decision. Schedule a case evaluation with our San Jose construction accident lawyer today.

Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve

In the event that a third party contractor or machine manufacturer is responsible for your accident, it is possible for you to seek additional compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death claim, especially if your workers' compensation benefits are not adequate for your needs. It is important to note that you legally may not file a personal injury claim against your employer.

Contact an experienced attorney to help you determine whether you have a valid claim against the at-fault party.

The Catastrophic Costs of Heavy Machinery Accidents

Due to the nature of most construction sites, there may be several types of heavy machinery in use at any given time, from bulldozers to cranes to excavators. It only takes a single moment of negligence, a faulty mechanism, or poor training to cause serious or fatal injuries, such as:

  • Amputations
  • Bone fractures
  • Burn injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
