Workers’ compensation is a crucial part of any democracy. Those injured in the workplace deserve to be compensated to ensure they can continue to live their life. Almost every occupation has a chance for injury. People working from home, from a desk, or from a warehouse all have a chance for injury. If you become injured while working, you may be able to make a claim for workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation ensures that you coworkers and employer cannot be sued if you are injured. However, you will be guaranteed certain rights if you become injured on the job. Recovering workers compensation can be a complicated process. It must be processed through insurance and your employer. Our firm can be with you every step of the way to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

 

Workers’ Compensation: 

If you are injured at the workplace, you may be able to file a worker’s compensation claim. It is more likely that your claim will be successful if you are able to prove that you were injured. After the acceptance, you may be entitled to benefits from workers’ compensation.

 

Personal Injury:

If you have been injured physically or mentally at the construction site, you may be able to file a claim against the person or company that caused the personal injury.

 

Product Liability:

In many cases, construction sites operate with limited equipment which may cause faulty or defective products. In the case that a product that is defective causes a personal injury, you may be able to file a lawsuit. There are multiple parties that may be held liable depending on your case. These include the company, the wholesaler, retailer, or manufacturer of the product.

Wrongful Death: 

If a construction worker is killed while on the job, their loved ones may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit on the worker’s behalf. More than one claim may be filed at the same time, in some cases.

 

OSHA Rights

Occupational Health and Safety Administration promotes safe working environments. They provide construction workers nationwide with rights to ask for inspections from OSHA; utilize their rights legally without discrimination or retaliation; obtain training and information about construction hazards, harm prevention, and OSHA workplace standards; obtain copies of testing for hazard results; obtain records of any work-related illnesses and injuries; and obtain copies of their medical records.

 

An attorney can assist those who have been injured in construction work, or who believes they are working in a hazardous environment not following OSHA guidelines and files complaints with OSHA.

 

Employers cannot demote, fire, or retaliate against a worker who has filed a complaint. If a worker has been retaliated by their employer for this reason, an attorney can assist them in filing a claim against their employer.

 

Damages to Recover

Accidents at construction zones can be serious. Significant physical, emotional, and financial troubles are common in construction place injuries. If you are injured in an accident you may be able to file for damages that include medical bills, expenses, loss of wages, hospital visits, and pain and suffering.

 

What to Do If You Have Been Injured on the Job

 

If you have been injured on the job, you should notify your employer immediately and, if you need medical treatment, request a form LS-1; have your injury evaluated by a doctor; provide written notice of your injury within 30 days of the incident; and file a written claim for whatever date falls later, compensation within a year of the injury or the last compensation payment. If you have suffered an occupational disease or hearing loss, you may be provided additional time to provide written notice of your injury, and you will be afforded two years to file your claim.

Hospital Staff Workers Compensation 

 

Doctors, nurses, and medical staff deal with life and death situations on a daily basis. Through this, they often experience pain and abuse in their line of work. Medical staff are often victims of verbal abuse in the workplace which may lead to stress and anxiety. In rare cases, medical staff can become victim of physical violence such as kicking, hitting, and sexual assault. If you or a loved one are a medical professional and experienced any form of abuse, you may be entitled to financial compensation. As technology in hospitals improves, medical professionals continue to deal with all kinds of patients on a daily basis. It is the job of the hospital to protect its staff and sometimes this does not happen. Unsafe and unsecure working conditions may lead to the victimization of medical professionals.
