Construction Accident

A construction site is a dangerous place to work—everyone knows that. To guard against the dangers, construction workers should be provided with proper protective equipment, including safe scaffolds, ladders, harnesses, life lines, and other equipment to prevent serious injuries. Owners, contractors and others should recognize the dangers present and should take measures to prevent accidental injuries. If you or someone you love has been hurt on a construction project, you want an experienced and aggressive group of attorneys to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.
