Construction Worker and Laborer Work Comp Lawyers
Construction Workers and Laborers have jobs that require continued physical exertion making them more subject to work injuries that nearly any other occupation. The job duties of Construction Workers and Laborers require continual standing, lifting and carrying of heavy objects. The duties of the job may also require stooping and bending resulting and back and neck injuries and repetitive motion injuries over time. Construction sites also contain dangerous equipment that has the potential to cause injury.

Our Firm defends Construction Workers and Laborers in Missouri Workers’ Compensation claims and work to obtain full and complete recovery for the injuries sustained. An injury to a Construction Worker or Laborer can have a devastating impact on the employee because the employee relies so heavily on his physical abilities to complete job tasks.
Injuries that occur at a construction site may result in a Workers’ Compensation claim and a separate personal injury claim against the party responsible for causing the injury. At a construction site, an employee of another employer may have caused the injury to an employee and there may be a separate claim against that employee’s company for negligence. In order to obtain complete recovery for our client, we evaluate all available avenues for financial compensation including possible claims against the architect, engineer, contractors involved in the construction operation or equipment manufacturer for defective or malfunctioning equipment. The connection between Missouri Workers’ Compensation Law and the separate personal injury litigation requires an experienced attorney to ensure full and complete financial recovery.
