Heavy equipment, high-powered tools and uncertain terrain make construction sites among the most dangerous workplaces. In 2016, 991 construction workers nationwide were killed on the job — more fatalities than in any other industry, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

We will pursue a case that maximizes your recovery, whether we achieve that through workers’ compensation or a negligence lawsuit.
As with workers injured in other types of workplace accidents, victims of construction accidents are eligible for workers’ compensation to cover their medical expenses, lost wages and potentially some retraining for another job. Workers’ comp does not require that you prove anyone was at fault: the insurance is provided by your employer as a requirement for doing business. However, if your employer or someone else, such as a contractor, subcontractor or property owner, was responsible for your injury, you may be able to file an injury lawsuit against them.
Do not accept a workers’ compensation settlement before speaking to an attorney — you could forfeit your right to file a lawsuit against any responsible individuals or companies.
