Construction workers need to have a safe work environment. When this doesn’t exist, there is a chance that the workers might suffer injuries. These can be very serious, so construction workers should learn about what options they have to address their concerns.
Some of the injuries that construction workers suffer can be life-threatening. Others can be life-altering. Think about how much a person’s life would be damaged if they suffered a spinal cord injury or brain injury. Both of these injuries could mean that the person can’t function normally. We know that is can be very frustrating and disheartening.
It is also possible that a person who suffers an injury at a construction site might not be able to return to work. This could mean that they’ve lost their income and have medical bills that are going to start arriving in the mail. This creates a perfect storm of expenses at a time when income is limited or nonexistent.
While many people think about workers’ compensation for injured workers, this isn’t the only option that construction workers might have. Some construction accidents are due to defective equipment. In this case, the worker could launch a third-party claim for compensation.
