Construction Injury and Workers Compensation

When a construction injury hits, the injured person will not only lose time on the job but may never be able to perform that job again. Quite often, the injured worker finds themselves at odds with their employer, regarding questions of paid time off, when they are healthy enough to return to work, and whether they should be compensated for their injury.

This compensation will range from covering medical costs, to future and lost wages, to pain and suffering due to the injury you sustained.
