Skilled Trades And Workers’ Compensation Representation

If you are a utility worker or skilled tradesperson who was injured at work, your injury is typically covered under your employer’s workers’ compensation coverage. In order to receive benefits, you may be required to submit to a physical examination by your employer’s insurance doctor. After verifying and determining the scope and nature of your injuries, you should receive benefits covering your medical expenses and lost wages. In certain situations, however, an injured employee may be denied workers’ compensation benefits.

Protecting Your Rights Begins With Understanding Them

While most employers are willing to help injured workers take advantage of the benefits owed to them, others cannot be counted on to provide employees with accurate, thorough information concerning their rights. Sometimes, employers attempt to reduce their costs by either convincing an injured worker to return to work early or signing a statement that essentially relieves the employer of any liability for workers’ compensation benefits.

If your employer asks you to sign a pre-written statement regarding your accident or tries to convince you to “tough it out” on the job, our attorneys can intercede on your behalf to ensure your rights – and job – are protected. We’ve successfully represented countless clients in trade and utility worker compensation cases and are familiar with the kinds of tactics used by construction companies and building contractors to cover up the cause of accidents and avoid consequences for safety violations.
