Construction and Jobsite Accidents

Three decades of representing victims of construction accidents and defects in Boston, Massachusetts

Construction law attorneys at Thornton Law Firm LLP have seen the devastation that results from jobsite accidents.  These accidents are rarely simple, and the claims that result require significant legal experience to pursue.

Nearly all serious injuries suffered in construction accidents give rise to workers compensation rights.  Yet, the case often does not end there.  Limited workers comp rights may be supplemented by legal actions against others who are responsible for activities on the jobsite and may have been negligent in causing the accident. Potentially responsible third parties include—

  • Construction managers
  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Manufacturers of defective equipment and tools

The right to sue these individuals and entities depends on various complex laws and the individual circumstances of the accident.

Lawyers with the construction accident experience you deserve

Thornton Law Firm has successfully represented numerous seriously injured workers against such third parties. We have secured multiple jury verdicts in excess of $1 million, and we have negotiated comparable settlements in several other cases.
