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 other industries.
Due to the inherent risks construction workers face, a unique and complicated set of labor law statues govern construction sites and construction related accidents. The applicable law provides for liability against owners and contractors for injuries caused by falls from heights even where no acts of negligence were committed. In most instances, Federal and State laws will both apply. 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.
While workers' compensation provides workers injured on the job with benefits including payments based on lost wages, and total or partial disability, this is usually not enough compensation for the victim. Our construction accident lawyers fight hard for Construction and Workplace accident victims winning settlements that compensate for medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. Our experienced attorneys will fight to get you the compensation you are entitled to above and beyond workman’s compensation.
