Despite local, state and federal safety laws, and advanced equipment, people still wound themselves on the job. Many cases involving a construction accident injury are pursued through the Workers Compensation Law, a statutory process that awards damages and disability allowances. However, in some cases, a lawsuit may be filed alleging negligence or illegal conditions that led to the person’s pain and suffering.
