Construction Accident

Working in the construction industry can be dangerous. If you or a loved one is injured as a crew member on a construction site, your case can be much more complex than a normal workers’ comp case.

If a subcontractor was negligent, making situation more hazardous contributing to the accident, that must be taken into account. In many situations, a construction case may require a more detailed investigation than many workers comp cases. The investigation could cover several parties that may need to be held responsible.

  • Falling Objects
  • Being Run Over by Heavy Equipment
  • Being Crushed by Heavy Equipment
