Marine construction is booming in New England. Workers are building and repairing docks, bridges, seawalls, ferry and boat terminals and marinas. Marine construction workers injured on the job may be able to receive state or federal workers’ compensation benefits, and also bring a lawsuit against their employer or against the vessel involved in the injury. If you or a loved one is a marine construction worker who was hurt at work, call us to discuss your options. It may not matter if you were hurt “in the shop” or on site over the water.
