What type of benefits can I receive after a construction accident?
If you’re here, chances are that you were involved in a construction accident. I’m sorry to hear that, and I hope that you’re seeking the medical attention that you need. It’s important to know that your medical bills should be paid by your employer through workers’ compensation, as well as your lost wages. It’s important that you notify your employer of the accident as soon as possible so that you can get those benefits.You also might have a case against what we call a third-party. It could be the owner of the property, if there are industrial code violations. It could be the owner of the property if there’s a violation of a 240 of the labor law. You also may have a claim against the other contractors that were involved. What you have to understand is that you don’t have a claim, other than workers’ compensation, against your employer, meaning that you cannot sue your employer. There are exceptions to that, but as a general rule, you cannot sue your employer, but you do potentially have claims against the owner of the property and other contractors that may have been involved. It would be wise to seek the advice of counsel.
