Boston’s Experienced Construction Site Accident Lawyers
Are you struggling to make ends meet after a construction site accident has left you seriously injured? Construction workers face dangerous conditions on the job every day. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that one in ten construction workers are likely to suffer a work-related injury at some point during the year.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the Boston area where world-class construction projects like the Big Dig have transformed the entire city. Unfortunately, our high dependence upon these workers is paired with an equally high rate of catastrophic injuries, permanent disability, and death.
Compensation for Injured Construction Workers and Families
Due to the level of danger regularly present on construction sites, construction workers that are involved in an accident can suffer from serious and debilitating injuries — broken bones, fractures, damaged nerves, lost limbs, amputation, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, brain injuries, burns, disfigurement, and death.
THE KAPLAN/BOND GROUP can help injured construction workers and their families understand the legal options available to them and then guide them towards a recovery of their losses.
We handle injury and wrongful death claims resulting from all types of construction site accidents, including:
- Construction equipment accidents
- Construction site falls from scaffolding, rooftops, ladders, etc.
- Scaffolding and ladder accidents
- Unsafe worksite, premises liability
- Defective construction vehicles
- Sub-contractor negligence
- Burns, explosions, and electrical shock
- Exposure to toxic chemicals and products
Generally speaking, whether you fell from a ladder or were harmed by dangerous construction equipment, if you have been injured while working on a construction site, you will be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for your injuries. However, given the degree of severity of most construction injuries, workers’ compensation will barely scrape the surface of the compensation that your family will require in the aftermath of your injuries.
If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to recover money damages above workers’ compensation benefits. THE KAPLAN/BOND GROUP has the knowledge and resources to analyze the cause of your injury and help you determine if you are entitled to more than just workers’ compensation.
Our experienced trial attorneys have a vast working knowledge of the industry, the people involved, the rules and regulations that govern, and the range of personal injuries that construction workers often suffer. If you or a member of your family has been injured or killed in a construction accident, our construction accident litigation team can help.
