Injuries on the job can occur in a variety of ways and in any industry, but a high number of workplace accidents occur on construction sites. Due to the dangerous nature of the environment, construction site accidents often cause serious and catastrophic injuries to construction workers. These accidents include:
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Electrical accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Falling debris
- Defective equipment
It does not matter, however, what kind of company you work for or how long you have worked for a company in order for you to be eligible for workers' compensation benefits. You are also eligible for benefits if you are injured in a car accident while using the vehicle for your job. In that kind of a case, you may have a claim of workers' compensation as well as a personal injury claim against the driver of the other vehicle.
Our firm will help you understand your rights and your options under the law and will pursue the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
