Construction injury cases must be planned carefully

Construction injuries are serious matters that can greatly impact a worker's future. It is imperative that any construction worker who suffers an injury on the job learns about the options he or she has for seeking compensation. It might surprise you to know that you may have a choice.

One of the possible outcomes of a construction injury case is that the person will receive workers' compensation. This will provide you with medical care for the injury. There is also a chance that you will be able to receive partial wage replacement if you are unable to return to work right away. Even though it seems like these benefits should be provided without any issues, there are times when a victim might have to appeal decisions regarding his or her case. We can help you with this process.

Another option that is sometimes present is a third-party lawsuit. These cases are reserved for times when another entity besides the employer is liable for the injury. For example, if your finger is amputated when a circular saw kicks back and the guard failed, you might seek compensation from the manufacturer of the saw or the designer of the defective guard.

When you are injured at work, you need to think carefully about who is responsible for paying the costs related to the injury. We can review your case to give you our opinion on how to proceed. Once you decide how to handle the case, we can help you get your chosen plan moving forward. This enables you to focus on healing and trying to get back to work so you can have the income you need.
