Construction and Work Site Accidents

Construction and Work Site Accidents

If you have been injured on a construction site, workers’ compensation benefits may not be your only remedy. Frequently, these accidents are caused by subcontractors or other entities on the construction site who may be liable to you for your injuries. They failure to adhere to safe practices on the premises may also be the result of improper planning or due to engineering defects which may implicate architects and/or engineers for liability for your injuries. Additionally, faulty equipment may also be to blame for an injury.

Workers Compensation does not compensate you for the pain and suffering you have sustained as a result of your injury. To obtain that additional level of compensation, call Mr. Durkin to discuss whether someone other than your employer or co-workers is at fault for your accident.
