Construction Site Slip and Fall Accidents
Construction sites are often hectic places with serious safety risks. Employers can mitigate the likelihood of an accident by maintaining the work site and training their workers. Sadly, even when employers follow every safety regulation and precaution, serious slip and fall accidents still occur on worksites.
Employees are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits to ensure that construction workers have access to medical and rehabilitative services after injuries occur. What’s more, depending on the circumstances, injured workers may be eligible to claim additional benefits soon after their accident.
