Protections are available for injured construction workers

This blog recently discussed the serious impact a construction or workplace accident can have on injured workers and their families. A construction accident can rob an injured construction worker of their ability to earn a living, care for themselves and their family and enjoy their life. As a result, it is important for them to be familiar with the resources and options available to protect them.

Unfortunately, construction workers have the highest risk of injury of any industry in the United States. Because of deadlines and financial incentives, construction workers may be pressured to cut corners concerning safety to complete a project sooner. Workplace safety should not be sacrificed for any other consideration and injured workers have protections to be familiar with.

Construction workers injured in a construction accident may be able to seek benefits through workers' compensation that can help with medical expenses, lost wages, disability and other concerns associated with an unexpected construction accident and the significant disruption one can cause in the lives of workers and their families. In addition, if a third party was negligent and responsible for the injury and harm the construction worker suffered, they may be able to pursue a claim for damages against the third party.

It is important that injured construction workers and their families are familiar with the full range of resources and legal options available to them when they have been harmed in a construction accident. The resources available to them can help them get back on their feet or see them through a challenging time when they are unable to work or earn a living to care for themselves and their family.
