Work Accident Lawyers – We Care About Work Safety Issues

The vast majority of workplace accidents are 100% preventable. When a worker is killed or serious injured in a workplace accident, the worker and his or her family often suffer a great deal, not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and financially.  Our work accident lawyers have authored many articles about workplace accidents, safety, etc.

The lawyers at Laffey, Bucci & Kent take great pride in representing injured workers. Firm founders, Jeff Laffey and Brian Kent come from union carpenter and steel worker families. They fight each case as if it were their own and feel privileged to help workers and their families.
