Equipment Injury Lawyers

San Jose Construction Accident Attorneys Help Clients Across Northern California

With such a high number of accidents on construction sites every year, it is common for individuals affected by dangerous equipment accidents to feel like just another statistic. However, construction workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits when they are injured on the job. The filing process can be complex, but our attorneys at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP can help you from start to finish.

We Will Fight 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.

Compensation from a construction equipment injury claim can be used to cover:

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost wages
  • Ongoing Treatment Expenses
  • Pain & Suffering

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
