We are recognized as the trial lawyers to come to when you know you deserve full and fair compensation for your construction site or workplace injury.
We represent injured construction workers and their families in all types of construction site accidents, including:
- Falls, ladder and scaffolding accidents
- Wall and roof collapses
- Dropped and falling objects
- Defective equipment
- Subcontractor negligence
- Forklift accidents
- Crane and conveyor equipment injuries
- Construction vehicle accidents
Construction workers face hazardous working conditions from the moment they step onto their job site. Builders and construction engineers also put their safety in the hands of manufacturers, property owners and subcontractors on site. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you are one of more than a million workers to suffer injury and lost earnings in a typical year.
Most construction workers are covered under workers' compensation insurance. If you get injured, you can file a workers' compensation claim. In most cases, however, you will be unable to file a further claim against your employer.
If you already have a workers' compensation firm working on your case, we will be happy to work with your current attorneys.

In some circumstances, you may also be entitled to seek compensation from third parties that may be liable for your injuries. These parties can include the subcontractor who set up the scaffolding that fell over, the manufacturer of the weld tank that exploded, or the property owner who failed to inform the work crews of potential soil instability. There are numerous potential third parties that may have liability for your workplace injury.
