Representing Road Crew Workers And Families
If you are injured on the job or your family member was killed in a road construction car accident, you are entitled to benefits from workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited and do not compensate you for everything you have lost.
If you are injured as the result of negligent driver, you have legal options beyond workers’ compensation. Our legal team will work hard to ensure that the insurance company of the at-fault driver compensates you for everything you have lost.
