Overview of Workers’ Compensation Claims
Being injured in a workplace accident, such as a construction accident, can be a traumatic and frightening experience for the victim. The prospect of being unable to work due to one’s injuries can leave one feeling nervous about their financial health and stability. Instances of workplace injury and illness are very high in America, with almost 3.7 million workers being affected every year. Although these workers pay for workers compensation insurance to cover the costs of their injuries in the event of an accident, it is often the case that the person’s employer tries to compensate them less than they are actually owed.
Depending on the line of work that the victim is involved in, there are a variety of serious and painful injuries and illnesses that can be sustained. Some of the injuries that workers can suffer include:
- Neck and back injuries
- Exposure to toxic chemicals or substances
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain damage
- Mesothelioma from asbestos exposure
- Muscle strains or tears
- Broken bones
