Workers’ Compensation and Construction Injuries
Every year, over 150K workers across America suffer from construction injuries as a result of workplace related accidents. These injuries are often the most serious and debilitating, resulting in long-term or permanent damage to ligaments, the spine, and joints. Because construction workers operate heavy and dangerous machinery, sometimes at great heights, they are far more likely to become injured than workers in other industries. In fact, statistics show that new construction workers have a 34.9% chance of being involved in a workplace accident. If you or a loved one is currently suffering from a construction injury, our firm can provide the necessary resources to ensure you have the best chance at receiving the compensation you truly deserve.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Hiring a personal injury lawyer for a construction injury is an integral part of pursuing your case. In these circumstances, you aren’t responsible for proving negligence on the part of another individual in order to receive compensation. You’re responsible for establishing that you suffered a construction injury and must also prove that this incident occurred while you were on the job. This compensation covers the cost of medical bills, disability, and lost wages. This does, however, negate the possibility of seeking damages related to pain and suffering. In the event that you’re involved in a construction injury, it’s absolutely critical that you file an incident report with your supervisor, especially if the extent of the injury doesn’t become apparent until shortly after the fact. This ensures that you have the necessary documentation to pursue compensation. Consulting with a trained personal injury lawyer becomes a crucial component in this process, because they can analyze your unique case and provide you with expert advice regarding all of your legal options.
