While safety procedures have improved, construction accidents still happen often. Some accident injuries are preventable. Worksite accidents caused by the negligence of someone other than the worker’s employer can lead to third-party claims. Many construction accidents have to do with:
- A worker falling on a site
- Objects falling on a worker
- Tools causing an injury
- Unsafe equipment
- Improper supervision
Get The Benefits You Are Entitled To By Law
The law provides workers’ compensation benefits to workers who are injured because of their jobs. Benefits take two forms: wage benefits and medical benefits. The type, duration and amount of benefits will depend on your situation. To receive benefits, you need to prove that the injury happened at work or that work contributed to the injury. Many times, your employer’s insurance company will attempt to restrict, minimize or deny benefits to you even if you have been an excellent employee for decades. That’s why you need the help of a workers’ comp lawyer to protect your rights and make sure you get what the law says you should get.
