Construction and workplace accidents happen fast, but the consequences can last a lifetime.

The stakes are high: Workplace accidents can be extremely complicated and proving fault and handling a construction site accident in the right way requires skill and an understanding of strategy.

Experienced attorneys showcase the challenges confronting plaintiff and defense counsel in handling and presenting a complex construction accident case. 

Experienced practitioners J.B. Dilsheimer on the plaintiff side and Lisa Bellino Apelian on the defense side will draw on their collective many years of experience handling these types of cases, and specifically focus on their recent experience working together civilly on a specific catastrophic construction accident case, to offer a compelling  “round-table” discussion of this dynamic practice area.
