Construction Accidents

Request a Consultation

Construction workers in all trades face numerous risks on a daily basis. When safety violations, lack of supervision, dangerous ladders and scaffolding, and other issues lead to injuries on the job, we help construction workers fight for the compensation they deserve.

Working in construction is one of the most high-risk occupations in the country, and a disproportionate number of construction workers get injured on the job every year. While workers’ compensation can provide limited medical and disability benefits, these benefits will not cover all your lost wages – not to mention all of the other financial and non-financial losses that can result from an on-the-job injury.

Fortunately, workers’ compensation is not the only remedy available to injured construction workers. While workers’ compensation law generally prevents construction workers from suing their employers, it does not prevent them from seeking full and fair compensation from other companies. Contractors, subcontractors, manufacturers, and other third parties can all be to blame for construction site accidents. When they are, the law holds them financially accountable.

Our attorneys regularly represent construction workers, HVAC technicians, electricians, welders, pipe fitters, bricklayers, painters, and other individuals who have been injured as a result of:
