Construction Accident

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 construction accident lawyers have extensive experience in handling construction and worksite injuries.
