Construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces there are, with workers frequently suffering injuries due to repetitive motions, accidents, and other workplace hazards.
While most construction site managers make an effort to reduce the risks of injury at their sites, it is still common for construction employees to be hurt on the job.
Being injured in a job-related accident can be incredibly debilitating. Not only does the injury force you to miss out on vital work hours, costing you income, it also will probably saddle you with expensive hospital bills. This double whammy to your finances is often enough to create a huge strain in your life.
Workers’ compensation is a system set up to help injured workers maintain their lives in the throes of the financial ruin brought upon them by their injuries. Seeking workers’ compensation after sustaining a disabling workplace injury can help you cover these costs and overcome the hardships imposed on you by your workplace injury.
