Injuries are often serious and potentially deadly. Hard-working construction professionals are suddenly out of work, wondering when or if they will return.

Once we have determined the cause of the accident and the party responsible, we move forward with any of the following claims:
- Workers’ compensation
- Social Security Disability Insurance
- Wrongful death
