Construction Accident Lawyers in Killeen, Texas
According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, one out of every 10 construction workers is injured on the job every year. This includes everything from minor injuries to those that leave the worker disabled. The two biggest causes of construction site injuries are falls from a high platform and accidental contact with heavy equipment. In 2011, 721 construction workers died as a result of their injuries.
Worker’s Compensation is Not Always Enough
When you’re injured at work, you like to think that your employer will take care of you. However, many injured construction workers find that the amount of money they receive from their employer’s workers compensation fund is not enough to pay their medical bills and other expenses. Another thing to consider is that the amount of worker’s compensation you receive is based on your salary. This is limited to two-thirds of your weekly compensation.
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for injured workers to have to fight for even basic benefits. Your claim may be denied altogether or your medical care may be inadequate. If this has happened in your case, you need an experienced construction accident lawyer on your side. At Zinda Law Group, our personal injury attorneys have several years of experience helping workplace accident victims recover fair compensation.
Determining Who is at Fault for Your Accident
Accidents on the construction site are often due to someone else’s negligence. It could be a heavy equipment operator that manufactured a faulty machine or a supervisor who deliberately put you in harm’s way. As you might expect, construction site owners and manufacturing companies aren’t always quick to accept responsibility. You may be blamed for causing your own accident when it was clearly due to negligence. This is because the insurance carrier does not want to lose any money. At Zinda Law Group, we aren’t afraid to stand up to big insurance companies and demand accountability. We think that your right to fair compensation is more important that the insurance company’s bottom line.
