Construction Injury | Wrongful Death

The workplace can be a dangerous place. OSHA estimates nearly 13 deaths occur on constructions sites every day, and nearly 4 million workers suffer serious injury annually.

Workers’ compensation only partially compensates workers who have been seriously injured, covering limited percentages of the injured worker’s loss of wages and medical care. Labor and Industries does not – and cannot – compensate a worker or their family for the human damages and emotional loss that comes from serious and catastrophic injury. Badgley Mullins Turner PLLC, represents injured workers and their families throughout Washington to achieve such recovery.

Pursuing claims against a contractor, an irresponsible project owner, or a liable third party WILL NOT jeopardize a worker’s right to receive benefits from Labor and Industries. Labor and Industries (L & I) has an interest in seeing that the worker recovers as much as possible from a negligent general contractor or third party. We work closely with L & I to maximize the worker’s benefits while pursuing these claims. If you believe you have a personal injury claim based on the negligence of a contractor, project owner, or liable third party, contact us now.

BADGLEY MULLINS TURNER PLLC, represents injured workers and their families with claims against general contractors, project owners, subcontractors, and third parties for serious injuries and death that result from hazards on construction sites and in the workplace.
