Job Site Accidents
By law, construction sites are required to have many safety measures in place to both protect workers and also ensure that jobs are completed in accordance with building regulations. Unfortunately, safety regulations and equipment are not always infallible. Construction workers risk their lives every day on the job working in dangerous areas with heavy machinery. If you or a loved one were injured by an equipment malfunction or negligence on the job site, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Experienced Delray Beach Job Site Accident Attorney, Shane M. Farnsworth, can help you protect your rights.
Job Site Injuries
Because of the nature of construction work, injuries can occur frequently. If you have been injured while working at a construction site, you have the right to compensation for your injuries. Your employer is responsible for your medical bills, lost wages, and further expenses such as personal loss and rehabilitation.
If you are injured, you should seek medical attention immediately, even for minor injuries. In order to file for workers’ compensation benefits, you will need proper and thorough hospital documentation. You should also contact your company or supervisor to inform them of your condition and begin the process of filing for workers’ compensation benefits. In the event that your company does not comply with your request, or does not provide you with information on how to proceed in a timely manner, contact a Broward County Personal Injury Attorney immediately.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Your company’s insurance provider should provide you with workers’ compensation benefits.
