It is hard to venture around without encountering a construction worksite. Whether it is a high-rise, office building, a store, an apartment complex, homes or road construction, individuals in Ohio and elsewhere are likely to travel by these sites, especially with spring upon us. Construction workers are vital in the construction industry, ensuring that projects are completed efficiently and on time. However, these workers are faced with many risks and dangers present at worksites and with the materials that they use.
Being injured at a construction site is not unheard of, but it is an event that could significantly impact the life of the injured. This is often where workers’ compensation can be vital. These benefits are what makes it possible for a worker to obtain the treatment they require and offset the financial burdens caused by lost wages.
At Brian, Zwick, Stone & Associates, our attorneys are aware how important workers’ compensation benefits are. We also understand that some injures require a person to take time to rest and recover. This means not working and earning paychecks. Our law firm understands the challenges this could pose, and we take the time to understand the concerns and challenges experienced by each of our clients. This includes wages losses, medical expenses, rehabilitation, permanent total disability, temporary total disability, permanent partial disability and other similar losses and damages.

While many construction workers are aware of the risks associated with their job, they never expect to be involved in a serious work accident. Unfortunately, these incidents could happen to anyone, making it important to understand what can be done to protect your rights.
