Protecting The Rights Of Injured Construction Workers
As you know, there are many ways to get hurt while working in construction. You can fall or something can fall on you, sometimes from a great height. Machines and power tools fail. Vehicles crash into one another. Chemicals can poison or burn you. Cranes and scaffolds collapse. Even office workers for construction firms can fall from a ladder.
Employers may wish you well, but the expenses caused by construction accidents must come out of their pockets. So, an employer will resist paying you full freight for an injury you suffered while working. You will want to have an experienced workers’ comp lawyer to make sure you get the money you have coming to you.
We Will Seek Full Compensation For You
The attorneys at Baehman Law understand construction, and we know the objections employers will raise to paying for your recovery. We will seek compensation for you for your medical expenses, time away from work, and rehab and retraining, when those things are necessary.
Q. Minnesota workers’ compensation doesn’t always pay all the bills. Is there more I can do?
A: If other parties contributed to the accident, including third-party contractors, property owners or equipment manufacturers, it may be possible to file a personal injury claim against them to increase your total compensation. Talk to us about third-party compensation claims.
We can take your case beyond workers’ comp and connect you with Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, so you can live a decent life if you can no longer work.
