If injured on the job, can a construction accident attorney help?

If you have been injured on the job while working at a construction site, it is possible that you are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. Navigating the workers' compensation system can be complex and it can be useful to have a lawyer who is knowledgeable in construction accident cases. In fact, having a strong legal ally can protect your rights during the claims process if you are injured on the job. 

As California workers know, the aftermath of a construction accident can be chaotic when dealing with financial stress and medical bills. In theory, workers' compensation should cover these expenses, but often it is not enough or the claim is denied. When a claim does not go as hoped, a lawyer can determine if a civil claim is a possible way to get the compensation you deserve. 

If you have lost a loved one in a construction accident, you may be eligible to have accident-related losses compensated. Medical expenses, lost wages and end-of-life costs can haunt a family long after a loved one has passed away. A lawyer can evaluate the circumstances of the fatal construction accident and walk you through every step of the litigation process.

A lawyer can reduce the amount of stress and paperwork you may face when filing a workers' compensation claim or filing a civil suit, allowing you to focus on recovering from a painful incident. It is important to have help from an individual with experience in both state and federal laws that could pertain to your case. A California construction accident attorney has the experience needed to successfully navigate the difficult weeks and months after you have been injured on the job.
