The Biggest Mistake an Injure Employee Can Make Is...

The biggest mistake employees make after suffering an injury at the workplace is...nothing...they do nothing. It's unfortunate...but due to intimidation by the employer or a fear of losing one's job, many workplace injuries go unreported.

This is a terrible mistake. 

You might try and "work through" the injury...or think "I better not cause any trouble at work"...but what happens is that you continually reaggravate the injury, and by the end of it, you're working in severe pain, and unable to perform your job at a high level. 

This way of thinking is very common near construction sites. There are so many risks at the workplace, and injuries, both minor and severe, can happen suddenly. When an accident resulting in injury does occur...report it, talk to us, and file a claim.

With more than 40 years of combined experience, we are familiar with tactics used by insurance companies to delay or deny workers compensation claims. We can assist construction workers with injuries from:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Excavation accidents
  • Falling options
  • Electrocution injuries
  • Ladder accidents
  • Forklift accidents

These types of accidents often result in serious injuries to the head and brain,back and neck. If heavy equipment was involved, a worker may have sufferedsevere fractures and torn limbs.

The severity of construction injuries often leave workers with permanent disabilities. To make sure you receive the compensation you need to cover your injuries, it is critical that you speak with a skilled workers' compensation lawyer who can protect your interests.

Your employer's workers' compensation insurance company may not tell you everything you are entitled to receive. Lost wages and compensation for medical bills are only part of your benefits.

Due to the severity of many injuries, workers' compensation benefits may not be enough to compensate you for your injury. You may be able to pursue a personal injury claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim.

You work hard to provide for your family...you work hard to have a roof over your head...you work hard simply because you have a hard working spirit. We'll fight for you to ensure you and your family are taken care of while you're unable to work.
