Tips for Injured Construction Workers

injured on jobConstruction sites may be at the top of the list of dangerous workplaces. Toxic chemicals, falling objects, heavy power tools, and an overwhelming amount of activity make these sites very risky. Are you a New Jersey construction worker that has been injured on the job? Don’t feel guilty about pursuing workers’ compensation benefits. Even the most skilled and careful construction workers can be prone to injury from the potentially dangerous and chaotic environment. Accidents still happen despite safety and preventive measures. However, even if your oversight or mistake contributed to the injury in some way, you may still be entitled to benefits.  If you were involved in an incident at work resulting in a severe injury or long-term disability, you have the right to seek compensation.  

Common Construction Site Accidents

 

  • *Slip and falls or falls from an elevated location
  • *Contact with falling objects or flying debris
  • *Equipment malfunction or accident
  • *Extreme exertion causing strain or repetitive stress injuries
  • *Contact or overexposure to toxic chemicals
  • *Fires or explosions
  • *Electrical wiring malfunction

 

What to Do After A Construction Injury

  Make sure to report an injury to the general contractor immediately to receive appropriate medical care. This is also the first step in the workers’ compensation process. Giving “notice of injury” to an employer is essential to filing a claim. Remember that you must also receive appropriate medical care from the healthcare provider of your employer’s choice in order for it to be covered under workers’ compensation.   After receiving immediate medical care, victims should contact a successful lawyer that is familiar with the local laws. The workers’ compensation process can be long and complex to handle on your own. There is some tedious paperwork and tasks to complete in a limited amount of time, so it is recommended to consult with a professional. A skilled lawyer has a wealth of knowledge and years of experience with workers’ compensation protocol. They will work hard to make sure you receive appropriate compensation for medical expenses and lost wages.
