The construction industry is an important part of the California economy, but it also commonly places workers at a higher risk for injury than those employed in other fields. Because of the unique challenges and risks faced by those who work on construction sites, workers who have been injured on the job may need help in order to secure the financial support that is needed. This is especially true for those who have never been injured on the job before.
On construction sites, workers are at risk for injury due to heavy machinery malfunctions, improper training or even inadequate protection from extreme weather conditions. Injuries can range from minor bruises to a completely disabling injury, affecting the victim’s ability to continue to work. In the construction industry, missed work will lead to lower pay checks, and when combined with medical bills, can lead to a financially devastating situation.
Experienced legal representation can give an injured construction worker a distinct advantage when filing a workers’ compensation claim. There are many challenges involved with securing recompense, but we work to make sure our clients know all of their options and make decisions that will benefit their future. Every worker who is injured on a construction site deserves a complete physical and financial recovery.
After a work accident, it is best to follow the protocol set in place by the employer. Once the proper steps are taken and medical treatment is obtained, legal assistance should be sought. We work for a beneficial outcome for our California clients, and we strive to protect their rights if they have been injured on the job.
