Construction sites pose many dangers to workers, contractors, and bystanders who are in the area. Construction workers are exposed to a wider variety of hazards and face a greater risk of work-related injuries and fatalities than employees in any other industry.
Due to the inherent risks construction workers face, a unique and complicated set of labor law statutes govern construction sites and construction-related accidents. The applicable law provides for liability against owners and contractors for injuries caused by falls from heights, by falling objects, or falls at construction sites caused by violations of the industrial code, even where no acts of negligence were committed. If you were injured on the job, it is critical that you find an experienced attorney with knowledge of all of the relevant issues and laws immediately to help process your case and protect your rights.
While workers’ compensation provides laborers injured on the job with some medical benefits, this is usually not enough compensation for the victim. Our construction accident lawyers fight hard for construction and workplace accident victims, winning recoveries that further compensate for medical expenses, past and future lost income, and pain and suffering. Our experienced attorneys will fight to get you the compensation you are entitled to, above and beyond what workers' compensation provides.
