Construction, demolition, excavation and manufacturing work sites are some of the most dangerous working conditions facing workers today. Serious and catastrophic work-related injuries at these work sites occur with an unfortunate frequency.

If you were injured in a workplace accident, your employer must provide insurance coverage called Workers’ Compensation or “workers’ comp”. Workers’ comp is designed to pay your medical bills and partly replace your lost income when you are unable to return to work.

Part-time jobs and independent contractors are generally covered. It may not matter that you caused the accident in which you were injured since workers’ compensation benefits are awarded regardless of fault. Unfortunately, because workers’ compensation insurance rates are based on the number of claims an employer’s insurer has paid, employers and their insurers have an incentive to delay and deny claims. Insurance companies will also wrongfully insist that you see a doctor of their choosing, another way they can try to deny your claim.
