Construction accident claims are very complicated. Oftentimes they involved a product failure. Many times they involve employer negligence and many times they involve conditions that, when you first look at the scene, you simply can’t understand.

How do we investigate our claims? The first thing we do is we get on the job site. We preserve the job site. We make sure that nothing is affected from the accident. We photograph, we videotape the job site, we take samples and we hire a team of experts to go out and investigate your claim.

We have significant experience in construction defect claims. For example, when another contractor, not your employer, is negligent, then you may be able to pursue that contractor for their negligence and recover for your injury.
