An injury which prevents you from working will soon have a serious financial effect. Workers' comp will replace two-thirds of you pay check after an initial three day temporary disability period. Workers' compensation benefits are generally inadequate so it is important to maximize your workers' comp benefits as well as looking for additional sources of compensation for your injuries. Very often an accident is the result of a malfunction of a product which gives rise to a product defect liability claim. In some cases a workman is injured as a result of negligent behavior on the part of a sub-contractor or supplier. In which case, a third-party liability claim could be filed.
A construction accident lawyer at our firm can assist you with any problems in getting your workers' comp benefits and will look carefully into the cause of your accident to determine if you could possibly obtain additional compensation for your damages, either through the state system or in a third party claim.
Because construction sites change from day to day it is important to take photographs of the site of the accident as well as contact information of workers who were present or other witnesses.
