How I Help

In addition to worker’s compensation, construction employees may also seek damages from others who may be at fault, including non-employee contractors (or subcontractors) and owners.  Those who are not employees, such as innocent passersby, may sue any and all parties that may bear liability, including property owners.

As a personal injury attorney, my role is to identify all those who may be liable, and to hold them accountable for their share of liability for the damages and injuries sustained by my clients.  In the case of construction accidents, often there may be multiple parties liable.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction-related accident, please call me for a free consultation.  There is no fee unless you recover compensation.
