Representing Michigan Victims of Fatality and Serious Injury

Compensation for Construction Accidents

Construction workers generally cannot sue their employers or co-workers for negligence outside of workers' compensation. However, the general contractor or another subcontractor may be liable for damages. Because of the high accident rate and the fact there is no limit on damages, construction contractors are usually required to carry ample insurance coverage.

Ferris & Salter, P.C., fights for your rights, investigating the accident to prove liability and exploring all avenues of compensation. Contact our construction accident attorneys for a free case evaluation. We will explain your rights as an injured construction worker, and aggressively pursue your claim for medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life for a permanent disability.
