On The Job Construction And Worker Accidents
Workers’ compensation benefits are only one part of the compensation you may be entitled to if you are unfortunately injured in a construction accident on the job. Depending on the circumstances of how your accident occurred, you may be entitled to bring a lawsuit for additional and significant compensation for your lost wages, present and future disabilities, future pension benefits, future lost earnings, and present and future pain and suffering.
Additionally, if your accident was caused by a third party involved in the work site or the building owner, we can represent you in bringing this third party case against them for your serious losses and injury.
The Stakes Are If You Are Injured At Work: Call Martello & LaMagna, P.C.
Very often accidents on the job strike at the worker’s very ability to earn a livelihood in the future. It is for this reason the stakes are so high. The worker can find himself suddenly facing mounting medical bills, inability to work, resulting loss of wages, negative effects on his personal life and of course the pain and suffering that goes with these losses. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation insurance only covers initial medical expenses and only a small portion of any wages that may be lost. A third-party action that we will bring on your behalf depending upon the circumstances of your accident will be designed to more fully compensate you for your disability, the mounting medical bills both present and future, loss of pension rights and lost wages.
