Construction workers often face danger on the job

Do you work in the construction industry? If so, you know that you may be put in a dangerous situation from time to time.

Unfortunately, this means that thousands of construction workers are killed and injured on the job every year.

There is no denying the fact that the construction industry is one of the most dangerous. Even so, this doesn't mean that you have to get on board with the idea that you may be injured at some point. Instead, you need to know your rights as an employee, including what your employer should be doing to keep you safe.

There are many types of construction site accidents, including but not limited to: heavy equipment accidents, roof collapse, scaffolding and ladder falls, and crane accidents.

It doesn't matter why or how you're injured, you shouldn't wait to receive medical attention. Along with this, make it a point to report the accident and injury to your supervisor and/or HR department without delay.

If you're injured on the job, it may be time to learn more about workers' compensation. Even if your company thinks you're to blame, you can still file a claim for benefits.

Tip: You should never accept money directly from your company if you've suffered a workplace injury.

At our law firm, we understand that New York workers' compensation laws can be complex. For this reason, we know that injured workers often times miss out on the benefits that are due to them.

If you're involved in a construction site accident, don't wait to learn more about your legal rights and how to receive compensation.
