Oakland Construction Accident Lawyer
A sheet metal worker attempted to walk out onto a catwalk high above the ground of a construction site. He didn't know that another contractor had removed the metal grates that made up the surface of the catwalk. He fell through the hole and was seriously injured. By their very nature, construction sites are dangerous workplaces. Heavy equipment, dangerous power tools, noise, and multiple sub contractors working together in close quarters all contribute to the risks. Strict rules exist to protect workers. Unfortunately, people still get hurt—often seriously.

"I was injured in two separate automobile accidents which were two years apart. In addition to the injuries sustained in those accidents I had other serious medical problems which made both cases much more complicated. Patiently and professionally Mr. Smith navigated both accident claims with four different insurance companies and obtained total settlements for both cases that we were very happy with. "
