Construction Injury – Workers Comp

An on-the-job construction injury entitles you to worker’s compensation benefits. Regardless of fault for the accident, workers comp benefits are paid if the insurance company approves your claim.

But what do the benefits cover? Generally, workman’s comp benefits should cover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Wage-replacement benefits
  • Death benefits

The amount of compensation you receive depends on how long you’re unable to work, and the type of injury you incur. Unfortunately, many insurers fight to resist paying out rightful compensation.

Common FAQ’s

  • When should you file a claim related to a construction injury?

    South Carolina only affords you a short window of opportunity to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party, so it is important to consult with a lawyer right away. But if some time has passed since your injury, the law does provide some limited exceptions so you might not be out of luck. Contact HawkLaw today to find out if you still have a viable claim.

  • What types of construction accidents are most common?

    The most common and, sometimes, deadly construction accidents are slip-and-falls either from scaffolding, cranes, and other high perched locations. Being struck by a blunt object or electrocuted by a live wire are also common causes of construction accidents that form the basis of construction accident lawsuits.

  • Can I file a construction accident claim even if I receive worker’s compensation benefits?

    If you can prove that a coworker or a subcontractor’s negligence contributed to your injury, in addition to your employer’s negligence, you can contact a construction accident legal firm to press a claim in addition to the worker’s compensation benefits you already receive.
