San Bernardino Falls from Heights Lawyers

San Bernardino County Construction Accident Attorneys

Construction workers often have to work in difficult, and sometimes dangerous, conditions on a regular basis. Some of these conditions involve working at great heights, where falls could result in severe and fatal injuries. Falls from heights often occur because of equipment defects, such as faulty scaffolding and ladders, or carelessness on the part of property owners, construction foremen and other workers.

At the Southern California law firm of Fernandez & Lauby LLP, our experienced personal injury lawyers provide representation for the victims of falls on construction sites from roofs, ladders and other high structures. We also represent the family members of those who have been killed in construction accidents in California. Our attorneys provide effective and knowledgeable service to help clients maximize the compensation that they receive for their damages.

Experienced San Bernardino Falls From Heights Lawyers

One of the most important factors in any accident is the identification of accident causes, responsible parties and their potential liabilities. Working with medical experts and other experts, we strive diligently to seek out this information and to build a strong case for our clients. Falls from heights can produce severe injuries that include:

  • Broken bones
  • Head and traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Amputations
  • Wrongful death

Sometimes, ladders and roofs are not safe for workers to be on, especially if they are using power tools or doing heavy lifting while they are up there. Guard rails, safety harnesses and safety ropes should be used, in many cases, to protect workers. If there are no safety features, however, or if equipment is not manufactured properly, it can easily result in a serious accident.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
