Looking at All Angles in the Effort to Recover Compensation You Deserve
Keefe, Keefe and Unsell P.C., construction accident attorneys.

Many accident victims injured on the job believe that workers’ compensation and health insurance benefits are their only resources for money to cover medical bills and other economic challenges created by their injuries or illness. In fact, equipment manufacturers, contractors and others often have legal accountability to people hurt because of negligence that causes accidents. Such as:

• A slip and fall, falls from scaffolding, ladders, cranes and other construction equipment

• Injury caused by heavy equipment failures often due to a fundamental design flaw, inadequate maintenance or inadequate operator training

• Auto and truck accidents on unsafe construction sites (poorly maintained, poorly organized)

We have the in-house medical knowledge and quality resources to properly gauge the full economic impact of serious long-term injuries or a wrongful death. Our experience extends to helping people who must cope with catastrophic crush injuries, brain and spinal cord injuries, back and neck injuries, burns, and other severe consequences.

We adeptly handle both premises liability and products liability claims, as well as other types of civil litigation. To work with an aggressive yet balanced personal injury firm you can count on for insight targeted at helping you recover, please contact us at Keefe, Keefe & Unsell, P.C.

Without diligent construction accident attorneys, construction companies would not be held accountable for dangerous safety oversights on the job site.
