Construction is an inherently hazardous industry. Despite the safety regulations that are in place, serious injuries are commonplace. Workman’s compensation does not pay for medical expenses or award monetary damages for pain and suffering, loss of occupation or disability. It does prevent you from suing your employer but there are options. If you have been involved in a workplace accident call the construction accident attorneys that will work hard for you.
