Protect Yourself After An Injury
The nature of construction work means it can be dangerous. Whether you work on a big site, or on an individual contracting job, injuries can happen at any time. If you or a loved one has been injured while working construction, it is important to consult an attorney right away. By pursuing a workers’ compensation case, you may be able to recover financial help for things like initial medical bills, ongoing therapy and lost wages while you are unable to work.
Filing A Claim Can Get You Help
I am attorney Jim Veith. I founded Veith Law Firm to provide skilled care to individuals with workers’ compensation claims. With more than two decades of experience practicing workers’ compensation law, I have seen many types of accidents. Common injuries suffered by construction workers include:
- Falling from scaffolding, cranes, ladders and more
- Equipment-related accidents like being crushed or backed-over
- Fires and explosions caused by exposed wiring or flammable materials
Whether the injury was caused by defective equipment, lack of consideration for safety regulations or any other reason, every employer carries workers’ compensation insurance. You are entitled to file a claim to receive compensation to cover medical bills, ongoing physical care and lost wages.
Ignoring an injury because the supervisor wants a clean safety record is not in your best interest and can lead to life-long pain or debilitation. Getting medical attention right away and filing a claim are the two best things you can do to keep your job, income and your health.
I help commercial, residential and union construction workers. I have extensive experience in union construction cases, and proudly represent union workers.
