Billings Construction Accident Lawyers
Elevated working conditions, dangerous equipment and an array of workers on a job site at any given time can make construction work a dangerous occupation, even when everyone on the job site follows safety standards. When someone is negligent, the conditions become exponentially hazardous and can result in life-altering injuries, such as brain injuries, paralysis, back and neck injuries, and even fatal injuries.

FINANCIAL RECOVERY BEYOND WORKERS’ COMP
Workers’ compensation laws prohibit workers from suing their employers for injuries suffered on the job, including construction accident injuries. Instead, medical bills and lost wages are paid through workers’ compensation. As experienced construction accident lawyers, we recognize that for most injured construction workers, this will not be enough. Therefore, we go to work investigating other avenues of liability, such as a negligent subcontractor or defective equipment manufacturer. Our ability to identify and pursue these third-party claims enables us to maximize the financial recovery each client receives.
