The heavy equipment and supplies you use in construction work create the potential for significant injury. In some injury cases, you may be physically unable to work for a time, or even permanently. Workers’ compensation should help you in these situations.
In the case of a temporary disability, you can receive compensation of a portion of your regular income. If your physical limitations are deemed permanent, you may be entitled to a lump sum award. Your workers’ compensation attorney can help you understand what you are entitled to receive and assist you in preparing your case.
