Construction Workers Injury

Construction Workers Injury

Hart David Carson LLP represents construction workers who have been injured on the job. Construction zones are highly dangerous, making construction one of the most injury-prone occupations in the nation. Failure to observe safety standards can easily result in injury, so if a general contractor hasn’t been fully compliant with OSHA’s regulations, there is a high probability that they will be liable for any injuries that occur.

In addition to personal injury suits, workers’ compensation laws dictate that employees who are injured in the line of work must be compensated for lost wages, medical expenses, and disability. Even something as simple as a strained back can merit some form of compensation, but for a construction employee to actually receive it is a different story.

Hart David Carson LLP provides the legal experience and skill needed to win compensation for your injuries. We aggressively advocate on your behalf and apply skilled analysis to determine the amounts you deserve.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Workers’ compensation is one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of workplace injury. Your employer is responsible for compensating you for the wages lost while recovering from an injury as well as medical expenses and disability. Depending on the long-term effects of your injury, you may be entitled to permanent disability benefits through workers’ compensation. Benefits here include:

  • Medical expenses, including prescription medications and doctor visits
  • Rehabilitation to help you cope with your injury and possibly return to work
  • Temporary disability benefits
  • Permanent disability benefits

Insurance companies will usually try to minimize the amount they have to pay, such as by arguing down the severity of an injury-related disability or claiming that a healthcare provider is not covered by workers’ compensation laws. Whatever the nature of your injury, you need the experience of a construction injury lawyer on your side.

Additional Benefits

In addition to workers’ comp, you may be entitled to other benefits as well. These can involve a complex web of laws, regulations, and contracts, so consult with Hart David Carson LLP prior to pursuing these claims. Common claims construction workers can make include:

  • Premises liability claims against a third party
  • Product liability claims against equipment manufacturers
  • Claims through union contracts, which can be highly complex

While construction workers cannot sue their employers for work-related injuries, there is still a possibility that they can get compensation through liability claims against third parties. Hart David Carson LLP can assess your case and determine what options are available to you.

Legal Assistance

The laws and regulations in place on workers’ compensation and personal injury claims are highly complex, and any mistake along the way can cost you the claim. In addition, the transient nature of construction work can make it difficult to determine liability if you wait to long, so you need to act promptly to pursue damages.

With a high level of expertise in workers’ compensation and personal injury law, our attorneys at Hart David Carson LLP provide you with the legal skill and strategies you need to successfully make your claim.
