What benefits are available to me after a construction accident?
In construction injury cases, there are a lot of benefits you can receive. You can get the same benefits you would in a car wreck case. You can get your medical bills paid. You get lost wages. You get permanent impairment. You can get future and past pain and suffering. A lot of times, workers’ comp is involved. Workers’ comp is a good system, but it’s not a complete system and it’s not going to make you whole.If you’re injured by a third-party on the work job, then that’s a good thing for you as far as getting more money. You can bring actions against a third-party for the same injuries. You’ll have to reimburse workers’ comp for some of the money they paid out, but you will probably be better off if you have a third-party to bring an action against. An example of this: if you’re in a company truck and you’re hit by another company’s truck with a driver, you’ll have a claim not only for workers’ comp, but also against that third-party construction company or third-party sub-contractor who hit you.
It’s very technical. It’s kind of confusing to most people. That’s why you need to seek a lawyer out as soon as you can, so they can help navigate you through this. It’s not difficult for an attorney to help you get a full recovery.
