Construction Site Accidents

Helping Construction Site Accident Victims Recover Compensation

There is no question that construction workers suffer the highest rate of injuries of any industrial trade. Every year, a significant percentage of workers at construction sites suffer an injury on the job. Most injured construction workers in Massachusetts qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. What you may not know is that a construction worker also is entitled to seek additional compensation from the nonemployer party whose negligence caused the injury. These cases are often referred to as third-party claims and can be brought against a property owner, a general contractor or subcontractor on site, or the manufacturer of the defective equipment that caused an injury.
