Besides the usual construction dangers related to close proximity of workers to heavy machinery, the threat of accidental injury or death as a result of traffic zooming by is ever present.

We work on a contingency basis. We don’t get paid unless you do.
Contact Our Road Construction Accident Attorneys
If your close family member was run over by equipment or crushed by equipment while doing road work or interstate work, you have our full sympathy. Beyond sympathy, however, we are prepared to help you obtain justice through the courts. We do not encourage our clients to accept less than satisfactory settlements as a way to get a case over with. On the contrary, we regularly take case to appellate courts, including the West Virginia Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court. We have handled appeals that resulted in precedent-setting verdicts.
