Workers' compensation protections for construction accidents

Workers can suffer serious injuries in workplace accidents and construction workers can be at even more risk of suffering harm in a construction accident. Because construction accidents can threaten the livelihood of injured workers, it is important for injured workers to be familiar with their legal protections and rights.

Construction accidents and injuries can occur in a variety of situations including injuries that result from dangerous scaffolding; falls from ladders or other areas on the job site; harm resulting from poorly maintained equipment; injuries caused by falling debris; electrical hazards on the job; and violations of Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules and standards. Whatever the situation may be, a construction accident leaves an injured worker unable to work to provide for their families and oftentimes facing mounting medical bills and expenses.

Fortunately, workers' compensation is available to help injured workers and their families through the challenges that follow a workplace accident or construction accident. Workers' compensation benefits can help with medical expenses, lost wages and occupational rehabilitation costs. It is important to promptly report a workplace injury that has taken place on a job site or construction site and to be familiar with timelines and requirements to apply for workers' compensation.

Having trained guidance through the process of applying for workers' compensation benefits can be helpful to ensure injured workers receive the full amount of compensation available to them. It is important for injured workers to know how to protect their rights, and to be able to assert those rights, when they have been harmed in a workplace accident.
