Third-Party Claims Vs. Workers' Compensation

Construction sites are full of risks, and these risks can be exacerbated by the negligent actions of others. In a construction site accident, most people automatically think of workers' compensation.

Defective products, unsafe premises and other factors involving negligence or willful disregard for safety procedures may have caused the accident, so start building a strong case today.
