An injury at work can change your life in an instant. As an employee of the construction industry, your employer is responsible for implementing government-regulated safety protocols to help prevent construction accidents. But, these protocols are not always implemented and followed by your employer and fellow workers. If you are injured on the job, you may be eligible for a worker’s compensation claim to pay for medical bills and time missed from work. Workers compensation is a type of personal injury case where a civil attorney obtains money from your employer’s insurance company on your behalf.
