Michigan Construction Worker Injury Attorney
By Your Side After a Serious Injury
Construction work has been one of the most dangerous occupations for many years. Even as technology becomes more reliable and safety measures improve on construction sites, this line of work still remains dangerous for workers. When construction workers suffer work-related injuries that prevent or minimize their ability to work, Michigan workers’ compensation law entitles them to receive benefits.
If you have been hurt on a construction site, workers’ compensation could help you provide for your family, cover the costs of medical expenses and help you receive the vocational rehabilitation you need to get back into the workforce. Although the law entitles you to these benefits, they are not always easy to obtain. The process is long and complicated. At Adler Firm, PLLC, our construction worker injury attorney in Michigan can help you obtain the benefits you need. With more than 30 years of experience representing injured workers in Detroit and across Michigan, we know the workers’ compensation process and how to settle your workers’ compensation case so that you get the best possible financial benefits for your injuries.

Can You Still Get Workers' Comp If the Construction Accident Was Your Fault?
There are a lot of moving parts and a lot of things to pay attention to on a construction site. At times accidents happen and you may forget to take all of the proper safety precautions. So what if your own mistake led to your injury? Are you still covered by workers' comp?
The good news is that yes, even if the work accident was your fault, workers' compensation benefits are still available to help you recover from your injuries.
Most Common Causes of Construction Site Injuries
Some of the most common causes of construction-related accidents include:
- Ladder/scaffold falls
- Falling objects and debris
- Crane accidents
- Trench collapses
- Equipment malfunctions
- Construction site auto accidents
- Improper safety gear
- Construction site gas leaks and explosions
Workers’ compensation is available to injured workers regardless of who is responsible for causing the injury. If a third-party is in some way responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, we can bring a separate personal injury claim against that third party — called a third-party liability claim — to increase your overall financial award.
At Adler Firm, PLLC, our legal team is committed to helping injured construction workers obtain full compensation for work-related injuries. We can bring a third-party liability claim on your behalf to get you the money you need. We represent clients across the state from our offices in Traverse City and Detroit.
