There is a reason why construction sites require the use of hard hats and other safety equipment. Falling objects, electrical wires, cranes, scaffolding, power tools, ladders and areas of excavation may make a construction site an accident waiting to happen.

At the Franklin Law Group in Louisville, we provide personal injury representation to those harmed because of the negligence or reckless behavior of another.

As construction accident lawyers, we regularly work with medical specialists, engineers, occupational and physical therapists and others who have expertise in their fields and can help us build a solid case on your behalf. We fight the insurance companies to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve, to pay for your current and future medical bills and cover your lost wages, and in the case of long-term or catastrophic injuries, your loss of earning capacity. If warranted, we also pursue punitive damages in cases where there was reckless disregard for your safety.
