What Recourse Do I Have After a Construction Accident?
An injured worker should immediately apply for worker's compensation insurance benefits. Your company is legally required to have workers’ comp coverage, and your employer must not delay your attempt to make a claim. A successful petition may result in payment for your medical care and disability wages that replace your paycheck with 2/3 of your regular pay.
In some cases, an insurer may deny your claim or fail to cover all of your injuries. In others, a third-party negligence suit could be filed against the general contractor or a manufacturer of products or equipment. No matter your circumstances, our skilled legal team will help you identify the cause(s) of the accident and hold any injured parties accountable.
Types of Construction-Related Accidents
With heavy equipment, potentially unstable structures, and unfinished electrical lines (among others), construction sites are one of the most dangerous places to work. Because of all the hazards present, there are many injuries workers may face:
- Electrocutions and burns
- Struck by object
- Amputation and bone crushing injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Neck and back injury
- Brain injury
- Hazardous gas and toxic chemical inhalation
- Truck or heavy equipment accidents
Know Your Legal Options
Despite safety programs and engineers that carry out safety inspections of the job site, countless construction workers are injured every year.
