Contractors, carpenters, welders, and electricians have some of the most dangerous careers in the market.

We have worked with clients who have been injured in crane accidents, resulting in broken bones, loss of hearing, and longstanding brain and neck trauma.

We know all of the questions to ask
In many cases of construction-related injury, the employer did not take proper safety precautions. For example, the work environment was dangerous, protective gear not provided, and faulty equipment was used on-site. Perhaps safety training was never conducted, contributing to an unsafe workplace. We know all of the questions to ask and will walk you through every step of the process.
