Workers’ Compensation for Construction Workers

Injured on the Job? Get All the Compensation You Rightfully Deserve

An injury in your construction job disrupts your life. Workers’ compensation benefits were designed to keep you going financially.

The problem is that your employer, a workers’ comp insurance company or the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) could make it hard for you to get benefits.

They may grant you partial benefits, not tell you everything you’re entitled to receive, or deny you outright.

But you can protect your rights by working with an experienced workers’ comp lawyer from Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal (HNB).

After you worked hard in a dangerous construction job—the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) found in 2019 that 20% of worker fatalities in private industry were in construction—you deserve to have someone looking out for your well-being.

HNB represents individual people, not the government, big employers or insurance companies. We’ve secured millions for our clients in Ohio.

That’s why our clients say, “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

    What Steps to Take After a Construction Site Injury

    No matter what hazards you faced on the construction site—heavy machinery, power tools, scaffolding, falling objects, toxic materials, loud noise, physically demanding tasks, lack of enough safety training for your co-workers or more—you need to take the right steps when you’re hurt at work.

    You should do the following:

    • Tell your supervisor what happened right away.
    • Fill out a written injury report and get your own copy.
    • Go to your doctor for medical treatment, including a full check-up, X-rays, any other tests, and tell your doctor exactly what happened.
    • File your workers’ compensation claim on your own or through your employer or doctor.

    You can qualify for workers’ comp with many kinds of injuries that happen in many ways. It doesn’t matter for workers’ comp if any person was at fault.

    Perhaps scaffolding fell on you and now you have back pain. Or a machine malfunctioned and hurt your hand. Or a co-worker made a mistake and you suffered a head injury.

    If your employer broke one of Ohio’s “Violations of a Specific Safety Requirement,” or VSSR laws, you may be eligible for additional compensation.

    You may not know your best course of action until you talk with a workers’ compensation attorney who can look closer at what happened.
