Construction and industrial workers routinely work in conditions that are harmful to their health and well-being. It is the responsibility of the construction company to make sure that the construction site is safe for its employees. If you have been injured on the job, do not hesitate to speak with one of our Omaha personal injury attorneys today about filing a claim for compensation and holding your employer accountable for their lapse in safety.
Thousands of construction workers are injured on the job each year because those responsible for construction sites or industrial areas do not take safety precautions seriously. In fact, many injured employees believe that their injuries are their own fault, but often it is really the employers that are culpable.
If you have been injured in the course of doing your job, you may be eligible to collect workers’ compensation as well as other forms of compensation. Workers compensation generally covers medical expenses, any wages lost as a result of the injury, and future wages if your injury is severe enough to cause partial or permanent disability.
While many people believe that they can file their work-related and workers’ compensation cases on their own, we do not advise this. It is common for the employer to deny or only cover a portion of the injured employee’s medical expenses and lost wages. Instead of going it alone, contact an Omaha workers' compensation lawyer at Harris & Associates today. We are dedicated to helping you secure the compensation you deserve under the law.
