The construction industry is one that is filled with hazards. Workers must often function in areas that are far above the ground, using electrical tools and power equipment while they work around fine dust and toxic materials. When injuries occur on construction sites, they are often serious and can require months, years, or even a lifetime of costly treatment and rehabilitation. This may mean prolonged time off work, with no income. While workers’ compensation may offer some benefits, it may not be enough to cover all the life-changing costs of a serious injury. The law firm of Master Weinstein Moyer, P.C. of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, will evaluate your case to find all sources of negligence and responsibility for your injury and any related compensation.
Whenever a construction site worker is injured on the job, “a workers’ compensation claim in the State of Pennsylvania must be filed within three years of the injury, and the employer must be notified of the incident within 21 days.” However, in filing these claims, the sooner they are filed, the better. Contacting an expert attorney is a good idea so that all forms are filed properly and any other possible sources of compensation can be found in a timely fashion. After a construction site accident, you’ll want to focus on getting the care you need and on healing. That’s why having a law firm like Master Weinstein Moyer, P.C. of Philadelphia on your side can make dealing with all the challenges much easier.
