Helping construction workers maximize their benefits

Many of the world's most iconic structures call the Big Apple their home; the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler building, the Empire State Building. All of these man-made marvels create a degree of awe for onlookers, and thousands of tourists visit New York City every year just to see these buildings, take pictures and send postcards. Even though everyone knows that the structures had to be created by someone, it is not a thought that often occupies our mind.

The true incredibility of these buildings lies in the courage of those who built them, construction workers with willpower stronger than the iron they were laying. You have probably at some point seen a photograph of construction workers, standing or sitting on beams and scaffoldings thousands of feet in the air, with little to protect them from tumbling to a fatal accident. Obviously, modern technological advances have made such construction work much safer, but the inherent risks of injury remain the same.

It is for this reason that construction workers benefit so much from workers' compensation. Because the risk of injury is so great in this line of work, the comfort and security of knowing that you will be compensated if you are hurt, or that your family will be compensated if the unthinkable occurs, is worth its weight in gold.

If you work in the construction industry, and you have suffered an injury on the job, consider meeting with an attorney to learn more about your rights and what you can expect. Even if you are offered a payout through workers' compensation, you should still consider seeking legal assistance because the extent of your injuries could mandate a larger payout than you were offered.
