Los Angeles Lawyers: Workplace & Industrial Accidents / Personal Injury Lawsuits

In California, when industrial accidents are caused by defectively designed or manufactured equipment, or through the negligence of someone other than the employer of the injured party, the injured person has the right to pursue a personal injury action in the law courts, in addition to any rights they may have under the California worker’s compensation laws.

To prevail under California law, victims of industrial accidents (accidental work injury or wrongful death) generally must prove that their injuries were caused by the negligence or unlawful conduct of someone other than the victim’s employer. The extent of the victim’s damages in industrial accidents may include…

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Future medical expenses
  • Future lost income
  • Pain and suffering

California lawsuits involving industrial accidents are usually technically complex, expensive and contentious.
