Construction work is important work that supports our nation’s infrastructure and development, but it is also one of the most dangerous jobs out there. If an accident on the construction site leaves you injured, it’s time to consult with an experienced Yorktown construction accident lawyer.

Workers’ compensation is designed to expedite the accident claim process and to protect both employees and employers by taking the matter of negligence off the table. Generally, if you are injured on the job, you are covered – and your employer does not have to worry about a lawsuit.
