Getting Full And Fair Workers’ Comp Benefits For Construction Workers
Construction is one of the most labor-intensive — and potentially dangerous — industries. Each day, workers use heavy machinery and perform difficult tasks, sometimes at great heights or involving heavy loads. Safety measures are often enforced on work sites, but this doesn’t always prevent accidents and injuries from occurring.
If you have been injured in a construction site accident, we can help. At Parisi & Gerlanc, Attorneys At Law, our legal team is committed to fighting for construction workers throughout Hackensack and Passaic County who have been injured and are seeking the compensation they need and deserve. These benefits help to cover medical treatment and lost wages.
To learn more about how our lawyers can help you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you need, please schedule a free initial consultation with our Bergen County law firm today at 551-587-8915.
Injuries that occur on the job will be covered by workers’ compensation. It is important, however, that you have skilled guidance in filing the application and fully documenting the extent of your injury. Without the correct medical opinions, you can undermine your efforts to receive maximum benefits that you deserve.
New Jersey And Bergen County Construction Worker Injury Lawyer
Often these accidents cause back injuries, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, broken bones and even chronic pain from years of repetitive motions and stresses. We have the medical background to help you understand your injury and how it relates to your job. Our staff will help you find the doctors and treatment you need to fully document the pain for workers’ compensation.
If another party, other than your employer or co-workers, was involved, you may have a third-party liability. For example, if the equipment malfunctioned causing your accident, you may be able to file a claim against the company that manufactured the equipment. This would proceed separate from your workers’ compensation claim. We will advise you as to any possible additional claims you may have, based on the circumstances of your accident.
