Heavy Equipment & Truck Accidents
Construction accidents involving trucks and heavy equipment can often have serious consequences. Even if you were wearing all the required protective gear, a mishap with a piece of equipment or truck that weighs hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds can cause serious injuries. Whether it’s a broken bone or even a fatal construction site accident, these work accidents are a big deal.
Not only can these accidents lead to devastating injuries, but they can put you out of work. Most people aren’t in a position where missing a paycheck is not a problem. Whether it’s a rent or mortgage, or even paying for groceries, many people work paycheck to paycheck. Now that you’re injured, missing out on work means missing out on the wages you need to afford medical treatment. This series of events can leave any individual feeling desperate and overwhelmed.Workers Compensation Can Help
Fortunately, most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to help injured employees recover from injuries. Unfortunately, not all employers and insurance companies work in good faith to get you the compensation that you are entitled to. Even if an injury is obvious, the insurance company may still deny your case.
