Construction Injury Law primarily deals with the workers' compensation claims that arise from construction accidents. The law also deals with safety regulations employers must meet while creating and working on construction sites. Most of these regulations are based on federal and state occupational safety and health departments, particularly the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Construction law also has several common standards that generally apply to all countries.
Although workers' comp is a no-fault system intended to protect employees and keep them in the workforce, some states offer more protection than others. In New York, for example, medical marijuana is not a defense to workers' comp if it's used during work.

Any injury claim should be reviewed by an experienced construction accident and injury attorney to determine your rights and options.
