Were You Seriously Injured While Working?
Both state and federal officials have implemented a number of rules and regulations in an attempt to ensure that workers remain safe while on the job and have protection when things go wrong, but there isn’t much that can be done when someone acts negligently or recklessly around others. The United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that nearly 5,000 people (PDF) were killed in construction accidents in 2015 alone, and countless more suffered serious injuries.

Will Workers’ Compensation Cover Your Costs?
In some cases, workers’ compensation insurance can cover the costs associated with injuries workers sustain while on the job. If your employer carries this type of insurance, it can cover anything from death benefits to income benefits to medical benefits, but far too often it cannot cover the entirety of the cost of recovery. When the medical bills and damages incurred by your injury exceed the benefits your employer’s workers’ compensation, you will likely need to hire an attorney to help you with your case and prove liability in order to secure the compensation you require.
Not only is there a risk that the workers’ compensation insurance may not provide you with enough money to cover the costs of your injury, a growing number of employers are choosing to forego this type of insurance entirely, putting their employees at a greater risk if they ever suffer an injury. In these cases, it’s especially important to hire an experienced attorney to help you fight for and secure the compensation you need to cover any rehabilitation costs, lifestyle changed, medical bills, lost wages or financial security lost because of your injury.
