Indiana Work Injury & Workers Comp Lawyer
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) lists the construction industry as the 10th most dangerous job for workers. With a multitude of tradespeople, contractors, and subcontractors on-site and a wide array of hazardous materials and equipment, there is great opportunity for an accident to occur– even with safety procedures in place. Many workers injured will be unable to return to work temporarily. In more serious cases, employees might suffer permanent impairments that prevent a return to work in this labor-intensive profession. Twenty-one percent of work-related deaths occur in the construction industry according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
A serious construction accident could create major financial stress for a worker's family or even mean the end of an employee’s career. Attorney Charles Carlock has a history of fighting for clients who have been injured on a job site or had a construction work injury - he's worked solely as an Indiana worker's compensation and injury lawyer since 1993.
