Injured On The Job As A Construction Worker?
Construction is one of the most dangerous fields of work across the United States. This is true across all kinds of construction — from residential and commercial to roads and roofing. In Massachusetts alone, thousands of construction workers are injured on the job every year.
Workers’ compensation is a critical safety net for these employees. After a work injury or illness, you may be entitled to benefits such as:
- Medical coverage
- Wage replacement
- Disability benefits
- Rehabilitation benefits
However, it’s important to work with an attorney who understands workers’ comp.

We’ll Investigate Whether You Have Other Claims, Too
Depending on your situation, workers’ comp might not be your only source of recovery.

We also handle death benefits and wrongful death claims for family members of construction workers who were tragically killed on the job.
