Work-Related Injuries in Martin County
Construction workers face real dangers every day, even when the employer uses best safety practices. Many of the injuries sustained are very serious, life threatening or fatal. Ladder falls, scaffold falls, trench collapses, electric and gas accidents as well as equipment failures are some of the accidents that frequently result in permanent disability or death. In any workers' compensation claim, third party liability should be investigated.
For example, if a scaffolding company failed to erect the structure correctly and it later collapsed, it may be possible to pursue damages beyond the compensation due through workers' compensation benefits. Cases in which there has been a gas explosion, equipment failure or other situation in which another company was involved could allow us to fight for more compensation either through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
The inability to work, as well as the medical costs can be extensive, and in some cases will range into the hundreds of thousands in just a few months. Serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, severe burns and others will require a lifetime of medical care and treatment. It is imperative that the injured worker has the financial wherewithal to get access to high quality care and treatment, as well as any future treatment released.
The process of recovering fair benefits from workers' compensation can be far more difficult than expected. If you fail to present all documentation, or your case is challenged, if you do not file within time limits and if you don't really understand what benefits could be available to you, it can cause you serious financial trouble.
