Construction Worker Accident
Construction Worker Accidents
Everyone has the right to feel safe on the job, and construction workers are no exception. As a construction worker, you understand the importance of onsite safety. You wear the right safety equipment and you follow the proper protocols. Unfortunately, however, sometimes construction workers are injured on the job in spite of the fact that they followed safety procedures.
There are many types of onsite construction injuries for which you may file a claim, including falls, being hit in the head, electrical or chemical accidents, and many others. An attorney can help you figure out whether your injury may qualify you to file a claim.
Your supervisors and employer are required to help keep you safe on the job. If you got injured while working at a construction site, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Even if you believe that your own actions may have contributed to your injury, you still may be entitled to workers compensation.
As a construction worker, you know that the work you do is dangerous, but you are still entitled to be as safe as possible on site. And if something does go wrong, you should not have to suffer in silence.
An attorney can help you navigate your state’s workers compensation program or file a lawsuit. Workers compensation programs may entitle you to a weekly stipend and/or to money to help cover the cost of medical expenses related to your injury. If your injury has prevented you from working, or made it more difficult for you to work, workers compensation can be a significant help as you try to get back on your feet.
Your employer may also be liable, particularly if they failed to follow required safety procedures. Other parties, including equipment manufacturers and property owners, may also be liable for your injuries. An experienced attorney will listen to your story and help you determine who might be liable for the injury you suffered.
