If you have been injured in a construction accident in Los Angeles or Southern California contact the SoCal Injury Lawyers today at (800) 950-7755.
Throughout the state of California, millions of construction workers go to work every single day. With the infrastructure growth plan of the current administration, there will be even more construction going on to improve roads, bridges, highways and railways. With a significant amount of money being used to improve the infrastructure of the state it stands to reason that more workers will be needed to take on the task of rebuilding the ways in which we travel.
Over the last decade, we have worked with dozens of individuals that have suffered personal injuries due to the negligence of an employer or a piece of construction equipment. Unfortunately, a construction site injury often alters once career tremendously. Heavy equipment such as cranes, backhoes, bulldozers and excavators use thousands of pounds of force to move the earth and pieces of steel. The human body cannot sustain being trapped in the moving parts of these pieces of equipment.
Amputation is unfortunately common in construction site accidents. Workers often get their hands, fingers, toes and feet in a compromised situation at no fault of their own. If the piece of machinery does not amputation a part of the body it may cause major nerve damage making it necessary for a doctor or physician to amputation that extremity. If you have been injured due to the lack of oversight on a construction site, call the SoCal Injury Lawyers today at (800) 950-7755. We have a team that has worked to recover the maximum compensation to cover injuries, medical bills and future loss of income.
Future Loss of Income After Amputation
When determining the settlement value of a personal injury case, one must assess the future loss of income. This is extremely important when it comes to construction site accidents and amputation injuries. If the victim of a construction site accident loses a finger, hand, toe or foot there is a very good chance they will not be able to perform the tasks to fulfill the requirements of a construction job.
If that individual was making $75,000 a year at age 29 they are going to miss out on a large amount of their future earning potential. To make it an easy calculation, let’s just say that individual stayed at the same salary for the rest of their life; this is very uncommon, but we want to make the calculation easy. If the construction worker planned to work until 65 they are going to miss out on 36 years of earning potential at $75,000 a year. We would calculate 36 times $75,000 to be $2,700,000 over the course of a lifetime. This is not the exact way the process works, but you get an understanding of the loss of income.
Most skilled employees have received a number of promotions and raises over the years. When calculating the loss of income, we will properly adjust the numbers based on expected raises and promotions.
It is also important to note that secondary or side jobs are likely unavailable to someone that has suffered an amputation injury. A construction worker may have side income as a copywriter or novelist. It will become extremely difficult to type a novel if one loses a finger or hand due to a construction site accident. While this income may still be available, it will come at much higher of a cost to the individual that suffered through the accident.
