Construction Site Accidents

Every year thousands of construction workers and laborers are killed or seriously injured while working at construction sites. The latest statistics for workers in the United States indicate that there were 5.7 million occupational injuries and illnesses among U.S. workers. Accidents on the job result in the deaths of 6,000 workers each year. This occurs even though many state and federal regulations, as well as industry standards, require owners, general contractors and sub-contractors to implement a wide variety of safety measures.

Although workers' compensation helps employees while injured on the job, it is usually not sufficient to fully compensate injured workers for all the damages sustained as a result of their work-related accidents.

Under Massachusetts law, in order to receive full and fair compensation for certain injuries, workers must commence lawsuits against the owners of property, general contractors, sub-contractors, architects, and even manufacturers of defective products. These lawsuits can provide additional compensation for pain, suffering and medical costs to a worker receiving workers' compensation benefits.
