New Hampshire & Maine Construction Accidents
Were you injured in a work-related accident?
The construction industry is one of the most essential sectors of our nation.
Whether it is the residential, industrial, infrastructure or commercial
industry, construction workers bring communities and business to life.
With large machinery, heavy objects and other hazards, construction sites
play host to thousands of accidents and countless injuries and fatalities
each year. Some of the most common construction accidents include:
- Falling objects
- Faulty and malfunctioning equipment
- Fires and explosions
- Toxic exposure
Just as with any employer, construction companies are obligated to provide
safe and healthy working conditions for their employees. There are also
a number of federal laws and regulations surrounding the construction
sector and the rights of workers. Despite these precautions, accidents
are still frequent. When injured workers pursue compensation through their
employers, they often find that it fails to fully meet their needs. This
results in serious financial struggles and significant consequences to
their personal well-being.
Legal Assistance for Construction Workers
Personal injury claims for construction accidents entail a number of technical
legal difficulties. Aside from potential factual disputes, construction
accident claims are also rife with dense regulations. Our New Hampshire
lawyers have specializations in workers' compensation,
personal injury law,
premises liability law and the many federal laws established by OSHA. In past cases, we have
successfully implemented this knowledge into building strong claims.
If you are a construction worker who has experienced a
work-related accident, our firm is prepared to help you complete the legal actions you need
to obtain full compensation. We also represent individuals who are not
construction workers and may have been injured as innocent bystanders.
