Construction Accidents and Workers’ Compensation: An Overview

Construction-accidents-workers-compensation | Gaylord & Nantais

Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that all employers must carry to help cover the medical needs of a person who is injured while on the job. This type of coverage does offer help to the employee but it can fall short of meeting their overall financial needs.

What Happens If You Are Injured On The Job?

If you are injured while working on a construction site, there are several steps you must follow if you plan to be compensated for your injuries. You must immediately report the injury to your employer and seek medical attention as soon as possible. You will also have to complete a claim form that is provided to you by your employer.

Don’t Miss Important Deadlines!

The last step in the process is to file your claim form as soon as it is finished. There are strict deadlines that must be met and without your completed claim form, your employer is not obligated to pay for your injuries. If you have any questions about your claim, it is imperative that you speak to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Hire a Work Injury Attorney

Your first step after seeing a doctor is to hire a work injury attorney. At Gaylord & Nantais, the attorneys specialize in helping construction workers who have been injured on the job. You should have a reputable work injury attorney by your side throughout the entire claim process. Don’t delay. Time is of the essence.
