Worker’s Compensation Vs. Lawsuit
If you are involved in a construction accident, then most companies will offer you some type of workers compensation in order for your medical bills to be taken care of. However, sometimes this amount is not enough to support you for the lost wages and time that you received during your recovery from the accident. A very important part of deciding whether to take the move from a Worker’s Compensation claim to a Lawsuit could all come down to negligence. Third-party injury claims can be extremely complicated. You are dealing with your employer, the supplier of the materials for your employer, and all of the insurance companies involved.
Receiving Proper Compensation from a Construction Accident Lawsuit
As said, the difference between accepting a worker’s compensation claim instead of having an attorney for a lawsuit is the amount of compensation you shall receive. Sometimes, it isn’t as simple as having just your medical bills covered. There is much more damage that these construction accidents may cause. For example, you have past and future medical expenses, lost wages, earnings and benefits, and the large amounts of physical and emotional pain caused by the accident. All of this may be monetized and you can receive this as compensation if you are backed by an attorney that knows what they’re doing.
