Due to the inherent dangers and increased risk of injury associated with construction jobs, on-site accidents occur frequently. Often, these accidents lead to catastrophic injuries that result in serious medical expenses and a lengthy absence from work. If you have been injured in a construction accident caused by defective equipment or the negligent actions of another, you may be entitled to receive compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.
