Injuries can happen to workers of almost any job. With that said, however, they tend to be significantly more prevalent in some professions rather than others.

Workers’ Compensation & Construction Accident & Injury Lawyers
Sometimes even when you take the best precautions you can – even when you’re very responsible and understand the dangers inherent to your job – you’ll find yourself the victim of a workplace injury. Kosin Law Office Ltd., we believe that you shouldn’t have to suffer as a result of an accident. When it comes time to navigate the tricky world of insurance and workers’ compensation claims, we understand how to help maximize your chances of recovery.
There are a number of avenues for you to pursue when you’ve been injured on the job. One of the most common is through filing with your employer’s workers’ compensation policy in order to seek compensation for your damages as well as pain and suffering. In some states, in fact, this is the the main recourse victims have when they have been injured in a construction accident. If this is the case for you, the experienced attorneys at Kosin Law Office Ltd. can help you file your claim and navigate the workers’ compensation system. Don’t sign anything before talking to a lawyer! Sometimes, workers’ compensation claims will be closed after an offer from the policy holder is offered, however oftentimes this offer is far less than what the victim has a right to collect.
Kosin Law Office Ltd. can help you decide whether or not you have a valid workers’ compensation claim. If you do, they can help you figure out just how much you are entitled to in damages as well as how to best go about recovering.
What are examples of construction accidents and injuries?
Construction sites are dangerous places, however sometimes they are made even more perilously by the actions (or inactions) of others. Some of the most common reasons behind construction accidents and injuries include negligence by a coworker and the failure of the site manager to properly maintain the site and ensure the workers remain safe from harm.
Some of the accidents that you might encounter on the job include:
- Electric shocks.
- Scaffolding falls.
- Chemical spills.
- Crane accidents.
- Falling materials like brick or rock
As you can see, many of these injuries are extremely concerning in nature and could result in significant injury. Sometimes, especially in cases involving falling materials like brick and rock, individuals might find themselves with permanent damage – brain injuries, for example, are unfortunately not uncommon when it comes to construction accidents and injuries.
In some states, you might be able to file a personal injury claim either instead of or in conjunction with a workers’ compensation claim. In these cases, you file a suit outside of the bounds of workers’ compensation and can often collect more than what the workers’ compensation policy would have paid out.
Personal injury cases can be confusing and incredibly complex to handle correctly. At Kosin Law Office Ltd., we understand how to approach your case in order to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve as a result of your construction accident and injury. We will take care of pursuing your best interests so that you can focus on recovering and moving on with your life.
There are a number of things for which you can sue if you’ve been the victim of a construction accident. These include:
- Pain and suffering.
- Lost income from work missed.
- Expenses for medical treatment.
- Emotional distress.
- Property loss.
- Loss of enjoyment.
These are just the basic categories to take into account when filing a personal injury claim. You might have more damages for which to sue, and you might have less. It’s important to keep in mind that it doesn’t matter exactly how badly you’ve been hurt, nor whether or not you have a claim in every category listed above. If you’ve been hurt in a construction accident, then you owe it to yourself to talk with an attorney who understands how these cases work. They can help you determine whether or not you have a case.
