Boston Construction Accident Lawyer
Unfortunately construction site accidents happen much too frequently in Massachusetts. These accidents result in serious injuries, and even death. Sometimes injured construction workers don’t know where to go for help. Depending on the type of construction accident, it is important to target exactly what caused your accident, who is responsible, and all sources of available insurance coverages to pursue. Boston construction accident lawyer Christopher Earley can help you navigate this process.
Those who work on construction sites, such as carpenters, electricians, plumbers, crane operators, laborers and others, are exposed to the risk of personal injury each and every day around a construction site. Even those not working at the site such as bystanders in the area of the site can sustain serious personal injuries from falling objects or collapses.
Massachusetts construction site accidents can encompass many niches of law such as Massachusetts negligence law, Massachusetts strict liability law, and Massachusetts workers’ compensation law. Federal law also comes into play in Massachusetts construction accident cases.
