Los Angeles Construction Accident Lawyers

Despite all the precautions taken, including industry and government-enforced safety regulations as well as continued advances in safety equipment and standards, Los Angeles construction accidents still happen.

Unfortunately, many times a construction injury or accident can be traced to an employer’s negligence, which according to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) often includes the following:

  • Improper fall protection or safety training;
  • Insufficient machine guarding;
  • Lack proper electrical safety training, including lockout/tagout procedures;
  • Poor electrical system design or failure to properly maintain wiring and components;
  • Failing to provide sufficient respiratory protection;
  • Improper training on use of scaffolding and ladders.

      “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

      His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”
