Construction and Industrial Accidents

Our firm has extensive experience in representing workers who have been injured on construction sites and in the workplace. Although in most cases, state law limits an employee’s ability to sue his or her employer, employees may still have claims against other third parties who may be responsible for their injuries. Site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and other non-employer entities may be at fault and legally liable for worksite injuries. Therefore, in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits, you may be entitled to additional damages for lost income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of services, and disability. Families of workers killed in industrial accidents often have the right to make wrongful death and survival claims. Our firm has recovered millions of dollars for injured workers in addition to their workers’ compensation benefits.

Due to the nature of construction and industrial accidents, these cases often have complex regulatory and factual issues, and may require technical engineering or other expertise. Our firm maintains relationships with experts in various fields essential to representing our clients injured in industrial accidents, and we have extensive experience in working with these experts in investigating and pursuing these claims.
