San Diego Construction Site Burn Injury Attorneys
Construction sites are dangerous places to work, but few people consider the risk of burn accidents in this profession. Construction site burns are actually fairly common, however, and they can be painful, debilitating injuries.

Our San Diego burn injury lawyers fight to make sure that all liable parties are held accountable and that our clients receive maximum compensation for these terrible injuries.
Construction Site Burn Accidents In California
There is always the risk of burn accidents on construction sites. Exposed electrical wiring is one of the most common causes of construction site burns. Second- and third-degree burns can result from contact with live electrical currents, and electrocution can also cause serious internal damage and death. Improper handling of electrical wiring and failing to follow prescribed safety regulations creates an unsafe work environment for which an employer or contractor can be held liable.
In addition to being susceptible to electrical burns, construction workers can sustain burn injuries in explosions on construction sites. Natural gas buildups and other hazards may trigger devastating explosions that can be fatal or cause grave injuries. Burns from hot water, caustic chemicals or steam escaping heavy machinery are also possible. Regardless of the cause of the burn, the result can be catastrophic. Burn injuries can require extensive medical treatment, including lengthy stays in hospitals and rehabilitation. Multiple surgeries are also common. Victims may find themselves permanently disabled as a result of construction site burn injuries and deserve to be compensated accordingly.
