Construction Accidents

Construction workers have to work long and hazardous hours. Even if you are as careful as possible, you are still at the mercy of equipment, actions of others and the weather. There are special laws in place to protect your health and safety. If you get injured at a construction site, it is imperative that you contact the experienced attorneys at the Law Office of Keith Short so that we can explain to you your rights to any benefits and compensation under the law.
