Providing Aggressive Client Representation
Because of the nature of work performed and heavy equipment present, construction zones are inherently dangerous and require stringent safety standards. The injuries sustained at a construction site can often be severe and debilitating. Whether the accident impacts an employee or passerby, our firm is able to handle any personal injury or workers’ compensation claim arising out of a construction site accident.
By law, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits when you are injured at work, regardless of fault. If you are working at a construction site and sustain an injury, you may also be able to pursue a personal injury, or third party claim, for your injuries. While employees cannot sue their own employer for a personal injury claim, you may have a viable claim against the general contractor or other subcontractor who was performing work at the construction site. We have secured millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of our clients, representing injured employees and individuals on a contingent basis. We exhaust every possible avenue to maximize damages and help you move forward.
Types of Construction Accident Injuries
The causes of construction accidents are numerous, due to the nature of the work sites and materials used. Some of our clients have fallen from scaffolding, been injured by or while using heavy machinery, and endured slip and fall injuries.

- Back and neck injuries
