Cambridge Construction Worker Accidents
The city of Cambridge is one that is always in flux. Whether a centuries-old building is being renovated or a brand new construction is popping up to accommodate the city’s growing population, construction is an ongoing certainty in Cambridge and in the surrounding Boston area.
Construction work remains one of the most dangerous jobs in America, and the risks are constant no matter the location. Consult with one of the experienced construction worker accident attorneys at Altman & Altman LLP today if you have been injured in a construction accident, as this is a vital piece to ensuring you are able to recover and heal without being burdened by high medical expenses and an inability to pay other bills.
Working construction involves many inherent risks, most of which can result in minor to life-threatening injuries including:
- Falls from great heights
- Equipment malfunctions
- Trench cave-ins
- Scaffolding injuries
- Concussions and brain injuries from falling debris
- Hearing damage and total hearing loss
- Crushing injuries from heavy objects
While no construction site can ever be devoid of risk for the brave men and women who push their bodies to the limit to build higher and better buildings, there are proper safety precautions which should be followed. If these precautions are not met, workers are at a much higher risk of sustaining a serious injury. In such cases, a personal injury attorney will be able to seek damages against the parties who allowed the unsafe work to occur, which may result in a much higher payment available to you to help in your recovery.
As with any other worker in Massachusetts, construction workers are entitled to receive workers’ compensation for any injuries incurred while on the job – regardless of who is at fault. However it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney in the wake of an accident, as it can be difficult and confusing to work with insurance companies and employers who don’t want to pay out expensive benefits.
Our experienced personal injury attorneys know how much you are entitled to receive, for how long, and if there are any additional avenues to pursue in order to secure more money to aid in your recovery. We understand that the last thing you need to deal with after an injury is a mountain of paperwork, so we take our responsibility seriously to lessen this burden and ensure that you have an advocate on your side who has a keen understanding of compensation law.
At Altman & Altman LLP, we have over 50 years of experience helping construction workers who have been injured while on the job. We take care of dealing with the insurance companies, and ensure you can focus on healing and recovering from your injury. We make sure that you are receiving all of the benefits you are entitled to, and will continue to monitor the situation throughout your recovery in the event the insurance companies or your employer tries to cease your benefits.
In some cases, you may be denied a claim for compensation, or receive less than what you are entitled to. In these cases, our personal injury attorneys will relentlessly pursue the issue in the courtroom until you receive the rights you are guaranteed under law. In the event your injury was preventable, we will hold any third party responsible for their negligence and secure you the best possible settlement.
Do not delay, for there is a limited time to make a claim for benefits and claims for damages against responsible third parties. Call us for a free consultation today at 617.492.3000 or toll-free at 800.481.6199. We are located conveniently in Cambridge, and are available 24/7.
