the Construction Industry
Any worker who is injured on the job may, in most cases, be
eligible or protected by Workers’ Compensation law. Once
workers begin any job, they should read about whether the
state law is in effect or not prior to signing up as an employee,
especially if the position is a high-risk job.
The main purpose of Workers’ Compensation is providing an
employee who has been injured on the job medical care, as
well as lost wages, and even job related disability for ongoing
Workers’ Compensation happens mostly in the construction
industry due to the high risk of injuries.
Some of the more common injury types include:
•Falling off a ladder
•Falling from a high-work area
•Back, knee, joint injuries from lifting heavy objects
From the employer perspective, accidents can be a good or not-so-good conundrum. Even though the
employing company has to pay the Workers’ Compensation insurance company premiums, at best, it’s a
comfortable parachute for the company.
Insurance companies protect them from becoming a victim of legal civil action. The injured worker may
file compensation claims with the state legal system. However, if it gets to that point, the employee may
best be served by hiring an experienced Long Island work injury compensation attorneyand not worry
about all the confusing paperwork that will be involved. Workers should always be legally informed.
