Fighting For The Amount Of Benefits And Compensation You Need

The dangers of construction work are well-known and include:

  • Falls from ladders and scaffolds
  • Heavy equipment accidents
  • Cave-ins and structural collapse
  • Electrical accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Construction vehicle accidents

Construction accidents can cause catastrophic injuries such as amputations, burns, fractures, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, joint injuries, crush injuries and internal organ damage. Any of these injuries can lead to permanent disability. In the most severe accidents, wrongful death may be the result.

Injured workers and their families will need significant compensation to cover their losses. In addition to workers' comp medical and wage replacement benefits, some people are able to recover additional damages from negligent third parties. A typical third party in a construction accident case may be a subcontractor on the job site or a manufacturer of defective equipment. We will file a separate personal injury or wrongful death suit in these cases.
