Safety risks abound on construction sites

The construction industry is an incredibly important industry, but just because it is vital, vibrant and financially successful does not mean it is without it's faults. The most prominent of these faults is the safety of workers in the construction industry. It may be an inherent part of the construction process, but nonetheless, the people who work on construction sites are almost always in a dangerous situation -- even when nothing goes wrong.

Construction sites are filled with heavy and powerful machinery. They are filled with dangerous substances and building materials. The work that needs to be done at the site could be at precarious heights, or in awkward locations. And the physical labor and effort that it takes to complete these construction projects puts more stress on a worker's body than most other jobs -- let alone expose them to risks other jobs don't.

There is a silver lining here, and it's workers' compensation. This insurance covers injuries that occur on the job, and worker's comp goes a long way towards covering the medical bills and lost wages of a victimized worker. But the process to obtain workers' comp can be a bit difficult and tricky. Without legal counsel on your side, you risk making a mistake during the application process that robs you of the maximum benefits you deserve.

At Parisi & Gerlanc, we can support you throughout the entire workers' comp process. We can advise you on medical staff to see and steps to take to improve your application for workers' compensation, all while advocating on your behalf if any legal complications arise.
