Workplace Accident Law Firm
If you are involved in a workplace accident your employer should have a Workers Compensation program available for you. However, Workers Comp benefits may fall short in cases of gross negligence on the employer’s part. Also, if the injuries could have been prevented you may have a case outside of Workers Comp. If your employer does NOT have workers Comp plan or the employer is at fault with negligence then you should speak with a work accident attorney.
Workers’ Compensation will likely cover all medical treatment and a portion of your lost wages. However, it is likely that you will have even more expenses than this compensation will cover. To learn more a how we may be able to help you, please contact our law firm today for a free consultation.
Construction Accidents/Injuries On The Job
The construction industry is one of the most dangerous jobs there is. Even if you are a safe, responsible construction worker, you understand the dangers of your work site and that things can go wrong. You wear the right safety equipment, take the proper precautions, and never violate site safety protocols. However, you can still end up suffering a serious injury while on the job. The construction industry is dangerous in itself, whether we are talking about the heavy equipment that is used or the nature of the specific job.
Injury in the workplace is always a possibility when working in the construction industry. Furthermore, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that approximately one in five workplace injuries take place on construction sites. Due to the requirements of the job, these accidents often lead to serious injuries and even death. At Rad Law Firm, our accident attorneys can help you if you have been injured on the job. We can help you obtain the compensation and justice you deserve.
