When you are seriously injured in a construction accident, you face not only the challenges associated with your injuries, but also financial difficulties due to your inability to earn a living. Unfortunately, due to the nature and severity of many construction accident injuries, you may not even be capable of returning to the same career. Experienced advice can make a significant difference when dealing with the anxiety, fear and sense of helplessness following a construction accident.

Job Site Injury Attorneys
Our law firm helps injured construction workers and the families of fatal construction accident victims following all types of accidents on the job, including:
- Forklift accidents, crane accidents and heavy-equipment accidents
- Ladder falls, scaffold falls and other falls from heights
- Slip-and-falls and trip-and falls
- Accidents involving power tools
- Electrical accidents
Workers who are injured on the job are typically entitled to workers' compensation benefits for medical expenses and lost wages associated with the work injury. However, when the injury is severe — which is often the case in construction accidents — workers' compensation benefits can be severely insufficient to accommodate all of the ongoing needs of the accident victim and his or her family.
Unfortunately, workers cannot sue their employer for injuries caused by negligence. However, if a third party (other than your employer) is responsible or partially responsible, you may have an additional avenue of compensation for pain and suffering, future lost earnings, loss of earning capacity, accommodations to your home and other expenses or hardships not covered by workers' compensation. Our ability to handle your workers' compensation case and investigate for any potential negligent third parties make our law firm an asset.
