Construction Accident Attorneys
If you are a construction worker anywhere in California, you understand the risks that you face on the job every day. Even the safest worker, who abides by all the safety regulations, could suffer an injury while on the job. If you are hurt in a construction accident while at work, you don’t have to go through the difficult time alone. You should be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits from your employer. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer will help you get your claim on the right track and get the medical care that you need.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that about 150,000 injuries occur on construction sites every year. While most of these injuries are falls, workers coming into contact with equipment is another significant cause of construction-related injuries.
If you are a construction worker who has been hurt on the job, you are eligible to pursue a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.
California’s workers’ compensation laws involve a no-fault system that allows you to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who is at fault for your injury just so long as it happened on the job.
You can get workers’ compensation benefits regardless of whether it is a disabling condition caused by your work duties, a work-related illness, or an on-the-job injury.
Workers’ compensation includes medical benefits, which will cover the cost of your treatment, and, also, pays about two-thirds of your lost wages while you are recovering.
The state laws vary regarding workers’ compensation benefits, but you can rest assured that our workers’ compensation lawyers are up-to-date with California workers’ compensation regulations and we will use that knowledge to work for you.
The Workers' Compensation Claims Process
If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, California law requires your employer to pay you workers’ compensation benefits. If you are working on a job site and you for example, suffer a serious cut to the hand while sawing wood, or if you are on a ladder when you fall off suffering a serious back injury, you can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.
Any construction accident should be reported to your employer by notifying your supervisor of the injuries right away. When you report your injury or illness quickly, it helps prevent problems later when your employer might allege that the injury didn’t occur on the job.
By quickly reporting the accident, it also ensures access to medical care promptly. Your employer will complete an accident report. You will need a copy of this report for your file and to support your construction accident claim.
If your employer isn’t notified about your injury within 30 days of the accident, and that keeps your employer from fully investigating the accident and determining the facts about how you were injured, you could lose your rights to claim workers’ compensation benefits under California law.
Be sure to provide specific details about your accident, including what you were doing, how the accident took place, and how you were injured as well as a detailed account of your injuries and how they affect you. Also, ask any witnesses to provide written statements regarding what they saw.
