Construction sites and other workplaces can be dangerous, and serious injuries can occur when other workers or supervisors are not careful. In addition, even when an injured worker receives workers’ compensation benefits, the law generally allows additional claims if a property owner, supplier, or other subcontractor on the site has been negligent.
Our Rhode Island construction accident lawyers have extensive experience in handling construction and worksite injuries. Our attorneys also litigate claims involving defective equipment and defectively designed structures and worksites that contribute to worker injuries. With our long history of litigating and negotiating personal injury cases, we know how to identify liable parties and help our clients pursue fair compensation for their injuries or losses.

Types of Construction Accident Cases We Handle
No matter the circumstances surrounding your accident or injuries, we have the resources to effectively investigate the incident and determine its true cause or causes. If someone other than your employer or a co-worker was accountable, we can consider other sources of compensation – in addition to workers’ comp benefits. Workers’ compensation will only provide for a portion of lost wages and medical care. A personal injury or wrongful death suit against a third party can offer the invaluable opportunity to recover compensation for full loss of wages, loss of potential earnings, emotional trauma, and more.
