If you're injured on the job, you deserve to make a claim

As a worker who regularly goes to different sites to do your job, you're always meeting new people and doing interesting tasks. Unfortunately, this exposure can mean that you are put in harm's way often. From potential crashes while driving to a job site to the risk of being bitten by a client's pet, you're always facing challenges.

Falls are a leading cause of injuries and death for construction workers. Since that's such a major risk, all construction workers and employers should be well aware of the safety procedures that have to take place to prevent them. Unfortunately, even with all the preventative tools that are available today, fall hazards still exist and can lead to accidents.

Workers' compensation is an excellent tool for protecting workers who are hurt on the job. Whether it's someone working for a company like Disney or an individual working for a construction team, the majority of workers should have access to workers' compensation in the case of injuries.

Stay safe with the right personal protective equipment

Construction accidents can happen at almost any worksite, from one where the team is working together to where one person has been working hard on their own. The way to prevent these accidents is to make sure that anyone working on a project has others around to help and knows the safety steps required to stay safe. Unfortunately, not all people do know the best ways to stay safe on the job and can get hurt.

What happens if an employer doesn't have workers' compensation?

When you're hurt on the job, you should be able to rely on workers' compensation. This coverage is generally carried by employers so that their employees have health care coverage and certain benefits open to them if they get hurt while at work.

Workers' compensation is for your benefit: Seek it out

Workers' compensation can help with many different situations. Whether you hurt your eyes while working or have chemical burns from a spill on the job, you deserve to be protected through this coverage. Workers' compensation helps you by providing you with coverage for medical care, a portion of your lost wages and more.
