Construction sites are filled with various dangers, from heavy machinery to chemicals to exposed electrical wiring and more, but workers still have a right to expect a reasonably safe environment. Construction companies must follow specific rules set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other regulatory agencies intended to protect workers and provide for them in the event of injury.
If you were hurt or a family member was killed in a construction accident, it’s advisable to discuss your circumstances with a knowledgeable lawyer who understands the extensive medical expenses, long-term rehabilitation costs and lost wages you may be facing. The Boston attorneys at the Kiley Law Group have helped numerous construction accident victims and their families pursue fair compensation for their injuries through workers’ compensation claims and, when applicable, lawsuits.

Even when victims survive, accidents involving unseen—and often heavy—objects can cause costly, life-changing injuries. It is critical that victims and their families get the support necessary to move forward. Financial compensation for such injuries is often available through workers’ compensation benefits, which cover medical bills and a portion of lost wages. Depending on the circumstances of the injury, it may also be possible to pursue additional compensation through a third-party claim.
