San Jose Construction Accident Attorney
Fixing That Which is Broken, One Client at a Time
Some professions are simply more dangerous than others. In fact, construction is known as one of the most dangerous professions. This statistic comes as no surprise considering that construction sites involve so many hazardous materials and types of heavy machinery. Construction accidents can be especially detrimental because the resulting injuries can end up keeping you from enjoying your life in full health or, in some cases, can keep you from working to support your family financially.
Construction workers perform long hours of physical labor and operate heavy machinery. When accidents happen on a construction site, the potential damage could be catastrophic or fatal. If you or someone you love has been injured while on a construction site, do not wait another moment to secure the legal representation that you deserve.

By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.

This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.
