While the most frequent cause of injury is heavy lifting, there are substantial numbers of injuries resulting from crushing, striking, falling, and other sources as well. Some of the more frequent types of cases we encounter include:
Due to the physically-intensive nature of construction labor, continuing to work while recovering from injury is virtually impossible. Unfortunately, this means a loss of steady income – just as you are hit with expensive bills for medical treatment and care.
