Construction injuries

Standing up for safety

Construction is a dangerous profession, but workers have the right to assume their job site is reasonably safe. Far too often, safety shortcuts result in unnecessary injuries and even death. 

If that happens, we have the expertise to help you understand if you have a claim against another party, or if the incident would be limited to workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
