Filing A Claim After A Construction Accident
Construction sites are dangerous places, both for the workers and for passers-by. Construction projects are necessary for the continued growth of the Boston area, but the accidents they can cause are a real concern for workers and others in the community.
At the law firm of Law Offices of Ira C. Yellin, LLC, we file workers’ compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits to secure compensation for injured construction workers as well as bystanders. With more than 30 years of experience each, our attorneys understand how to pursue these complex cases, which sometimes involve claims against multiple defendants. We will investigate the accident thoroughly and give you honest advice based on the facts and the law.
Handling A Variety Of Construction Accident Cases
Our Massachusetts work injury lawyer represents people injured in connection with a wide range of construction accidents, such as:
- Scaffolding collapses and ladder falls
- Construction site debris accidents
- Cranes, trucks and other heavy equipment accidents
- Electric shock and electrocution
Third-Party Liability Claims
If you are a construction worker injured on the job, it may be possible to recover compensation beyond what workers’ comp would provide. If your accident was caused by a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker), we can file a personal injury claim on your behalf, in addition to the workers’ compensation claim. An example would be an injury that was caused by a defectively manufactured scaffolding. The manufacturer could be held liable for injuries resulting from the collapse of that scaffolding.
We will help you explore all your options and do everything we can to maximize your recovery after a construction accident. We handle all personal injury and workers’ compensation cases on a contingency basis, so you will not pay any attorney’s fees unless we win your case.
We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency basis, so you will not pay any attorneys fee unless you recover money on your case.
