Workers in Virginia who get injured on a construction site will have a lot to deal with. Mark B. Williams & Associates, PLC, will help you move forward after an incident and learn how to navigate your life in the aftermath.
First, it's important to fight for the full extent of your possible benefits. In many situations, that is not what's going to be offered right off the bat. However, full compensation may be necessary. You could be dealing with short-term issues like broken bones, and you may need to take time off of work to fully recover. Hospital, emergency room and ambulance fees can also stack up quickly.
You may face long-term issues that require plenty of medical treatment or even lifestyle adjustments. This can include damage done to the spine or brain, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI). These can result in paralysis, difficulties with movement, and mental or emotional damage that can take years of therapy to work through. Again, your income could suffer from work absence.
There are many different parties involved in a construction site accident. Workers' compensation claims can cover some parts of the incident, but you may actually be able to get even more compensation through means beyond that.
If you have suffered from any sort of slip-and-fall injury, consider contacting an attorney for more information. You may be able to get full compensation that can help you to move forward in the recovery process. You can also contact us directly for further conversation.
