Construction Workers And Site Accidents

Houston Construction Site Accident Attorneys

Texas Construction Worker Injury Lawyers

Residential and commercial construction sites are filled with activity. Often, several different contractors are on-site at the same time. And, even if a team is not at the job site, their equipment or any dangerous condition they did not remedy can be present. Construction workers can sustain work injuries caused by their employer's negligence and third party negligence. If this has happened to you, turn to the law firm of Manuel Gonzales, P.C., for skilled help with a workers' compensation claim.
