When you are injured on a construction site, it is important to understand the special rules that often dictate how you will be able to receive compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys have more than 50 years of experience helping our clients understand these rules. We put the full resources of our firm behind each of our construction accident clients in order to try and reach a satisfying resolution to his or her cases. Contact Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP, for a free consultation about your construction accident case in the San Diego area.
Arbitration and Mediation
In many cases involving construction accidents, mediation or binding arbitration is used in place of the usual workers’ compensation process. Because of this, there is no involvement of a workers’ compensation judge, so it is vital to have an experienced attorney represent you. Our experience also allows us to effectively represent our clients and to walk out them step by step through both the arbitration and mediation processes, so that they fully understand what is going on and what their options are.
Many construction jobs involve labor unions. Often, the contractual clauses that require arbitration or mediation are found in the unions’ collective bargaining agreement (CBA). Our lawyers have extensive experience working with California unions and CBAs, and we apply this experience to construction accident cases to effectively represent our clients.
