Construction workers face hazards and dangerous conditions every day. Even the most safety-conscious employees are at risk for serious injury, and some accidents on construction sites are devastating or fatal. If you or a family member has been seriously hurt, it can be difficult to know what to do and where to turn for help.
You need an attorney with extensive knowledge of both Massachusetts workers’ compensation law and personal injury litigation. Fault for the accident may not be an issue with your workers’ comp claim, but it is critical for your attorney to evaluate whether someone other than your employer should be held financially liable for negligence.
With more than 30 years of relevant experience, attorney Mark S. Horrigan knows how to earn excellent results for Massachusetts construction accident victims and their families. His knowledge comes not only from representing injured workers, but also from several years on the insurance defense side of this equation.
Attorney Horrigan has an in-depth understanding of the protections and benefits available to Massachusetts workers around Lynn and the Boston area, including standards of care that contractors and property owners must follow. He has won multiple permanent and total disability judgments for clients before the Department of Industrial Accidents (DIA) and taken approximately 100 cases to verdict. He knows when to file third-party claims and how to obtain Social Security Disability benefits as well.
