How a Miami Construction Accident Lawyer Can Help

When a construction worker is injured on the job, they often face financial stress caused by lost wages and expensive medical bills. The stress caused by an accident can greatly impact the lives of both the construction worker and their family. 

Construction accidents don’t stop at the injury. Injuries often require medical treatment, and in extreme cases, may require surgery and rehabilitation. In some cases, the injury may even stop them from being able to return to work in the future. The cost of these treatments adds up quickly, sometimes even generating six-figure medical bills.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, contact a skilled Miami construction accident lawyer at The Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A. to file your claim and get you the benefits you deserve.
