Construction Site Falls/Fall Protection Law

Boston Construction Scaffolding Accident Lawyer

Suffering a serious fall from a scaffold, ladder or roof is every construction worker's worst nightmare. In many cases, the injured worker doesn't realize that there may be options to collect money damages above and beyond his or her workers' compensation benefits.

What Makes Us Effective: Broad Thinking and Focused Action

Effective legal action requires broad thinking and narrow action. THE KAPLAN/BOND GROUP recognizes that not every injury is a workers' compensation matter. Usually, the general contractor and/or the sub-contractors are responsible for the unsafe conditions that have disabled our clients and sometimes the sellers and manufacturers of dangerous or defective products are to blame. When we take your case, we consider all potential sources of responsibility and pursue each towards the best results possible.

Unfortunately, too many injured construction workers fail to seek adequate compensation for their injuries because they think workers' comp will handle everything or because they feel partially responsible for the accident. Don't expect your employer or the insurance company to take care of you after a serious fall on the job site. You don't know if you have a case for significant compensation unless you talk to an experienced personal injury trial attorney.

Call us toll free at (617) 261-0080 or contact our office by e-mail to schedule a free consultation. Our offices are located in Boston and New Bedford and we represent injured construction workers throughout Massachusetts.
