Report Your Injury, File For Workers’ Compensation And Talk To Us
If you have been injured while working construction, you should report the injury to your employer within 45 days and follow the procedures it requires. You should also file for workers’ compensation as soon as possible because there is a filing deadline. In addition, you should get medical treatment as soon as you can. Make sure your doctor knows you were injured on the job and will be filing for workers’ compensation.
While all injured workers can benefit from an attorney’s help, it is especially important for construction workers to speak with an attorney. Cases involving construction workers can be complex because there are typically many employers, contractors and subcontractors working on the site. This can make it challenging to determine who is liable for the injury.
Our attorneys have the experience to investigate your case and figure out who is responsible for your injury. We have worked on numerous construction accident cases and know the industry well. You can rely on our experience in this field. We will seek compensation from all liable sources. If a third party was responsible for your injury, we can file a separate personal injury suit against that party. Any compensation you receive from this lawsuit will be in addition to your workers’ comp benefits.
