Construction Injuries in Orange County
Many construction workers do not realize that they may have a claim beyond the limited benefits of workers’ compensation when they are injured because of the negligence of another person or entity. The Marquart Law Group can advise as to parties other than your employer who may be liable for damages, including other construction contractors, or manufacturers of defective equipment.

Construction Accident Liability
If you were injured on the job and a co-worker or your employer was to blame, you may indeed be limited to workers’ comp as recompense for injuries. However, the property owner, subcontractors in other trades, and other persons or entities can be held financially responsible for your losses if their negligence caused the accident, or you may have a third-party product liability claim against the manufacturer of tools, building materials, or equipment.
Our attorneys have secured damages for all types of construction accidents:
- Vehicle collisions
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Falls (holes, ladders, scaffolding, roofs)
- Falling debris / flying objects
- Power tool injury
- Explosions, fires, and chemical exposures
In one case The Marquart Law Group successfully represented the family of a construction worker who fell sixty feet to the floor below after the hydraulics of a high reach lift failed. Another client suffered debilitating back injury, falling into a hole that was not marked or secured by a previous subcontractor. And we obtained a settlement from the maker of a pneumatic nail gun that caused severe injury to our client.
