Few would argue the assertion that construction sites rank among the most dangerous workplaces in United States industry. The operation of heavy equipment, working at sometimes extreme heights, and other factors combine to present constant hazards to workers. General contractors have a responsibility to operate construction sites in a way that ensures the safety of all workers. When that responsibility goes unfulfilled and workers suffer serious injuries as a result, they likely have a claim for workers' compensation benefits.
Navigating the workers' compensation process can be quite complex for people who are not familiar with it. If you have been injured while working on a construction site, hiring an experienced Rhode Island construction accident lawyer can help to ensure that your interests are protected.
