Comprehensive Legal Support After A Construction Accident
Construction accidents can involve multiple claims. You may have a workers’ compensation claim against your construction company/employer and a third-party liability/personal injury claim against a subcontractor or another liable party. In cases involving permanent injury, you may also need to apply for Social Security Disability benefits.
Each of these claims involves a different legal action. With our law firm, you don’t need to hunt for three different attorneys. We have the experience and knowledge to handle every aspect of your construction accident case. We will fight to recover compensation from all available sources.
