What Should I do if I've Been Injured at a Construction Site?
In the event that a construction worker is injured, they are usually unable to sue the employer for work-related injuries if they are provided workers’ compensation. However, a third party could be held liable for the injury, allowing for legal action to proceed for compensation. Regardless of the nature and circumstances of the injury, many workers are able to receive compensation through the Workers Compensation Act. These benefits can be helpful, but if the injury suffered is serious enough, the amount of compensation simply won't cover the long-term pain, suffering, or medical expenses.

- Falls from height
- Motor vehicle accidents
