As a construction worker, you know that you’re in danger every day you work. Following the safety procedures is a must at your job, and anyone who makes a mistake could cause injuries to you or themselves. Construction injuries can be some of the worst, since slip and fall hazards or defective equipment can quickly lead to fatal wounds and life-long injuries.
Whether you’ve been involved in a scaffolding accident, fell off a ladder, were struck by a crane or were hit by a car while working on the highway, you have a right to seek workers’ compensation for your injuries. You may also be able to get compensation from third parties, like subcontractors or manufacturers of tools you used, if their negligence led to your injuries.
Of course, if it wasn’t you but a loved one who was hurt, you may be able to seek compensation, too. You will need to be able to show how his or her death has impacted you. Have you been financially impacted by your loved one’s death? On top of that, your pain and suffering along with the pain and suffering of your loved one before his or her death needs to be considered.
When you’re thinking about claiming compensation for a workplace accident, make sure you know what to expect. With the right assistance, you’ll have a better chance of getting the money you need to put your life back on track.
