Workers' Compensation Benefits are benefits that are paid out to an employee by their employer when they are injured in a workplace accident. If a beam falls on a worker while they are at a construction site, the argument for a workplace injury seems easy, but where the lines have become blurred, an experienced workers' compensation attorney can be vital.
In today's economy, many people have more than one job. So if an employee is injured at one job to the extent that he or she is unable to work at the other, it seems unfair - and financially damaging - to only receive workers' compensation for one job's wages.
Employees working in industrial or construction settings are especially susceptible to serious workplace injuries. These environments often have extremely large and complicated machines that can cause catastrophic injuries when they malfunction or when proper safety procedures or maintenance procedures are not followed.
