Construction Fall Lawyers in Rhode Island

Experienced Construction Accident Attorneys

For many workers in the construction industry, working above ground is just part of the job. During a normal work day, an electrician, mechanic, roofer, or carpenter may need to work from several stories above the ground. Working at these heights carries its own set of dangers, and the risks of working from such heights can be multiplied if the proper safety precautions are not followed or, for example, if the scaffolding being utilized was designed or maintained in a faulty way.

Construction site management and staff can also contribute to the injury of construction site workers if they are negligent in performing their job duties. Schedule a free consultation with our Rhode Island construction fall attorneys if you or a loved one suffered an on-the-job injury.
