As someone who has suffered from a construction accident in the workplace, you may be wondering what kind of legal claims you can make against the negligent party. It's important to know that any claim you make can be affected by the workers' compensation laws. You will also be affected by the extent to which your employer is responsible for your injuries.
Here are some things you should receive, thanks to workers' compensation laws. First of all, your medical care should be covered as long as it's reasonable. Under workers' compensation benefits, you may have to use the company doctor for up to 30 days, but you do have a right to all reasonable necessary treatments. After 30 days, you may ask to have a different doctor.
