Injuries incurred from construction accidents can cause serious damages. Construction workers depend on their ability to work in hands-on situations involving climbing, carrying significant amounts and having a range of movability. An injury can prevent an individual from working and providing for his or her family.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a construction injury, your case deserves attention from an experienced trial attorney. Carter Law Offices will provide the aggressive, caring and knowledgeable representation you need when faced with a legal situation.

- Exposure to chemicals

Many construction accidents result in head trauma, neck injuries, back injuries and repetitive trauma injuries.
