San Jose Construction Accident Attorneys Help Clients Across Northern California

With such a high number of accidents on construction sites every year, it is common for individuals affected by dangerous equipment accidents to feel like just another statistic. However, construction workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits when they are injured on the job.
