Construction Site Injuries
Construction is one of the most dangerous vocations in the United States today, consistently ranking near the top of reports regarding the number of occupational injuries each year. The tools and equipment used to complete construction projects, and also the conditions in which they are completed expose workers to a broad variety of potential hazards. Fortunately, however, construction workers who suffer work-related injuries may be able to file a claim to seek workers’ compensation benefits that will help to offset many of the real and opportunity costs created by the injury.
If you or a loved one has been injured in connection with your employment on a construction site, we want to help you to obtain the benefits to which you are entitled, even if your initial claim has been denied.
