Because of the nature of the work, construction site injuries tend to be catastrophic, permanent, and sometimes deadly. The effects of a work injury like a scaffolding fall that causes multiple spinal fractures can hardly be eased by workers' compensation benefits alone.
If you have been injured on a construction site, it is important to note that you may be entitled to more than just workers' compensation benefits. If a work site's safety regulations and requirements were not followed by your employer or the site manager, it may be possible to pursue compensation for personal injury.
Pursuing compensation, however, requires a legal team that not only knows statutory and legal principles that apply to construction litigation, but also understands the practical effects of a serious injury to a wage earner. Because we have worked on serious personal injury cases for more than four decades, this is the knowledge our attorneys command.
