Construction Accidents

Types of Construction Accidents

Construction companies and contractors by law must carry workers’ compensation insurance, no matter how big or small the company. Workers’ compensation covers medical care and lost wages, but the payments are limited and do not assign fault. We seek damages way beyond those covered by Worker’s Compensation, as the law allows, ensuring that your current and future needs are fully met. The employer owes a safe work environment for its workers, and is obligate to take reasonable measures to ensure safety.
