Holding Negligent Employers Responsible

If you were injured while on the job, you deserve to have your expenses covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. This is a seemingly simple concept, but countless workers who are injured find themselves encountering obstacles when their claims are denied or their employer disputes that the injuries are workplace-related.

Whether you’re a construction worker who has been injured by an unsafe environment or a truck driver who was harmed while transporting cargo, you deserve to have access to benefits if your injuries were caused by your employer. Even if you work in an industry with inherent risks, that doesn’t mean you deserve to suffer from injuries and lose wages from missing work to heal.

Hazardous Professions to be Aware Of

Though workplace accidents can happen in any environment, there are some professions that come with more risks than others. Our attorneys can represent you even if your injuries are complicated. Sometimes injuries can worsen pre-existing conditions and entitle you to workers’ compensation benefits.

Construction Workers

Construction workers are surrounded by hazards every day on the job, from heavy machinery to tall platforms to unstable buildings. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), 874 workers were killed in work accidents in 2014. Construction workers are often injured in falls, machinery accidents, slip, and fall accidents, and as a result of being struck by objects. While sometimes accidents are no one’s fault, it’s still recommended that you consult our attorneys regarding your injuries so we can determine whether or not you can qualify for workers’ compensation.

Truck Drivers

Truck drivers transporting cargo often are injured in motor vehicle accidents – one of the leading causes of injury in the United States. Drivers can be injured in a variety of ways besides in a collision with other vehicles. Drivers can acquire injuries by loading or unloading cargo when making roadside repairs, and by slipping and falling when they enter or exit the vehicle. Drivers can also be injured if their trucks are unbalanced, causing the truck to tip over during a turn.

Healthcare Workers

There is no disputing that healthcare workers have physically demanding jobs. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthcare is the fastest-growing sector of the U.S. economy and employs more than 18 million workers. Some injuries associated with healthcare include patient transfers, slip, and fall accidents, and injuries resulting from exertion under the pressure of understaffing.
