Can Workers Sue For Accidents on a Construction Site?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has experience as a work accident attorney. We interviewed Bobby about the legal rights of someone who has suffered injuries at an industrial workplace:

“Many incorrectly assume that construction workers do not have a right to compensation if they are injured on the job. While the worker chooses to do the job that they know is dangerous, they still have the right to file a worker’s compensation claim. Employers are required to pay for insurance coverage for all of their employees.” Said Thompson

“Another issue is that insurance companies will often reduce or even flat out deny benefits to workers who file. This practice is one of the ways that insurance companies remain profitable. An attorney can often help by negotiating with the insurance company to ensure proper benefits are paid out for victims.” Thompson added.
