Construction Accidents Don't Just Hurt Workers

Construction site work can be extremely physically demanding and dangerous. It is not surprising that many construction workers — and innocent bystanders — are injured on construction sites every day.

At the Wrentham law offices of Wood & Gresham, P.C., we help people throughout Massachusetts recover compensation for injuries sustained due to construction accidents.

With Many Dangers, The Risk Of Serious Injury Increases

Construction sites are ripe with dangerous conditions and many injuries — such as construction equipment injuries, scaffolding injuries and crane injuries — occur on, or near, construction sites every day.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to take certain health and safety measures to ensure their workers aren't exposed to undue risk. In addition, employers are required to comply with manufacturers' safety regulations and repair premises defects to keep construction workers and the general public safe when on or near construction sites.

We Can Make The Insurance Companies Pay

Our attorneys have more than 30 years of combined legal knowledge and experience helping clients bring successful personal injury claims. Because we used to work on the other side — helping insurance companies defend against personal injury claims — we know how to frame our clients' injuries to maximize the amount of compensation they receive.

Workers' Comp: More Compensation For Workplace Accidents

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, it is important to hire an attorney who also is experienced with the complexities of the workers' comp system.

Workers' compensation is limited to providing medical benefits and lost wages to injured employees. Personal injury claims arising out of construction accidents are not limited by state law and oftentimes provide those injured at construction sites with greater compensation for their injuries.

At Wood & Gresham, P.C., we understand how personal injury claims and workers' compensation claims stemming from workplace construction accidents intersect. By bringing both workers' compensation and personal injury claims we ensure our clients are getting all of the compensation they deserve.

If Someone's Negligence Caused Your Workplace Injuries, Call Us.

When the employers disregard safety regulations, or the negligent acts of another person cause a construction accident, contact Wood & Gresham, P.C. — our lawyers will be there to get you the compensation you need to recover. Initial consultations are free and confidential.
