Construction Accidents and Workers’ Compensation

construction-workers-60585_1920

No matter what occupation or industry you work in, there is always the risk of being injured on the job – that’s why workers’ compensation is such an important safety net for American workers, and especially for those who work in construction. Of all of the environments where accidents can take place, construction sites are among the most dangerous, and workers risk serious injury and even death each and every day. If you were injured in a construction accident, workers’ compensation can provide you with reimbursement for medical expenses required for your treatment, as well as any rehabilitation you may need and compensation for a portion of the wages that you lose as a result of treatment or recovery. In cases of long term disability, workers’ compensation can also provide for your needs. The Lancaster law firm of Vanasse Law is dedicated to ensuring that those who have been injured in construction accidents are able to navigate the challenges of Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation process with a minimum of difficulty. Contact us today to learn how we can help.

Workers’ compensation is a benefit that allows injured workers to receive compensation for their injuries. The process is designed to be no-fault, with employers getting the benefit of not being subject to personal injury claims and in exchange providing payment for their employees’ needs. Unfortunately, the process can quickly become adversarial if the employer or their insurance company makes the decision to deny a claim submitted by their worker. That is just one reason why you need the assistance of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Beyond providing you with knowledgeable assistance with the documentation and presentation of your claim, a workers’ compensation lawyer will also be able to carefully review the circumstances of your construction accident to determine whether others may be held liable for your injury. This can include third parties such as contractors, construction site owners, coworkers and equipment manufacturers whose negligence or defective products may have contributed to or caused your accident. If the attorneys at Vanasse Law believe that there are others who played a significant role in your injury and who should be held liable, we will help you pursue compensation from them in court to ensure that you get the justice that you deserve.

When an employee is injured in a construction accident, the impact can be devastating for them and for their family. Not only are their medical issues and expenses that need to be dealt with, but also the impact of losing time and wages at work. Workers’ compensation is there to provide you with the assistance that you need, but when your employer or their insurance company doesn’t cooperate with or agree to the validity of your claim, you need an experienced and knowledgeable advocate. Contact the attorneys at Vanasse Law today to learn more about how we can provide you with legal counsel that makes a difference.
