Construction Accident Attorney
For more than 25 years, Decof & Decof has been litigating and negotiating on behalf of injured construction workers throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
We understand the dangers of working with heavy equipment below ground and high above it. Our attorneys are experienced with general negligence laws and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and how to hold responsible parties accountable when their negligence or violation of standards injures workers.
Putting compassion and experience to work for construction accident victims
Although an injured worker may be collecting workers' compensation benefits, the law permits an injured worker to bring a claim against the owner, general contractor, and even other subcontractors present at the work site.
Construction Accident Lawsuit Expertise
We also litigate claims involving defective equipment and defectively designed structures and roads that contribute to worker injuries.
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fires and burns
- Machinery and equipment accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
