Workers' Comp Questions?
The system is complicated. We have answers (for free).
What About Workers’ Comp?
Many workplace accidents involve construction accidents, falls, defective machinery, explosions, and scaffolding accidents. Resulting injuries are often severe and can cause serious disabilities that prevent the injured person from returning to work. Workers’ comp protects injured employees and their dependents from lost wages and other hardships that the workplace injury caused.
Georgia’s workers’ compensation system generally applies to businesses with 3 or more employees. These laws provide financial and medical benefits to a worker who sustained an injury as a result of an accident, injury or occupational disease on-the-job, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
Beyond Workers’ Comp Benefits
While workers’ compensation benefits can be critical for your recovery, you may be entitled to even more money in your pocket after a workplace injury. If your accident was the result of a third party such as, for example, another employee or a defective machine part, you could have an additional personal injury claim on top of your workers’ comp claim. That could mean a substantial sum of money. Find out your legal options when you speak with a Montlick attorney for your free consultation. Our attorneys thoroughly explore every avenue possible to maximize your financial compensation.
Even if you’re employed as an independent contractor, and file a 1099 for taxes, you may still be entitled to workers’ comp benefits. Contact us today to find out if you’re eligible.
What If I'm Hurt but Not a Construction Worker?
It's About You
Unlike most big firms, we don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach to personal injury. We give each client and case the individualized attention they deserve. Your circumstances are unique, and we treat them that way.
In some instances, even those who are not actively working on a construction site can unfortunately be the victim of construction accidents. These incidents can include:
Construction creating dangerous or hazardous road conditions like spills or debris, falling construction materials striking passersby, explosions originating at construction sites, and more.
In fact, according to recent data, most fatalities resulting from work zone accidents happen to drivers and passengers, not the construction workers.
If you have been injured due to the operations of a construction zone, you could be entitled to compensation.
The #1 Cause of Construction Fatalities
Falling accounts for the greatest number of construction fatalities. While the falls may result from unstable work surfaces or human error, many occur due to the misuse or failure to use personal protective equipment. Ladder falls rank among the top reasons for fall injuries, according to OSHA. Falls from ladders may occur when:
- The wrong type of ladder is used
- Workers are improperly trained
- A ladder is loaded beyond its maximum
- A metallic ladder is used when conducting electrical work
A myriad of other reasons also contribute to construction place accidents, including:
- slips and trips
- airborne and material exposure
- struck-by incidents
- excessive noise
- vibration-related injury
- scaffold-related injury
- electrical incident
- material handling
