In 2014 the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics published figures for incidents of injury on the job: 3 in every 100 full-time workers in the Carolinas faced physical harm in their job. This statistic is even higher for workers in construction, the nature of whose work presents special bodily strain and hazard. Besides the pain associated with job site injuries, which may be ongoing, many people’s on-the-job incidents render them unable to work and earn money, placing an exponential financial strain on them and the people they love. The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Lawyers at Vasquez Law Firm may be able to help you.
Following your on-the-job incident, you need time to get better. You may have major medical costs and lost wages as a result of your injury, as well as other, more hidden expenses. If the company you work for is responsible for the injury that put you out of work, you have a right to compensation. Construction companies and their insurers may be resistant to paying for the injuries of workers because these cases can be very expensive.
No construction job injury situation is easy, but the experienced attorneys at Vasquez Law Firm, may be able to help you navigate the sometimes confusing workers’ compensation system. Our attorneys know the law when it comes to job site injuries. They can help protect your interests and get you the compensation to which you may be entitled. Our North Carolina workers’ compensation attorneys are proud represent injury victims in construction accidents in the Carolinas. Rest assured the insurance company will be contacting you, but they may not have your best interests at heart.
What You Need to Know
If you try to address your job site injury case without the counsel of an experienced lawyer, you may jeopardize your rights and the benefits to which you’re entitled in this unfortunate scenario. Construction and insurance companies are just that – companies – and they owe their allegiance to the bottom line. Insurance companies may hire experts (that they can back with significant financial resources) to represent their monetary interests and try to deny you the benefits you need.
