Compensation Available After a Construction Accident Injury
Understanding what type of compensation you may be entitled to after a construction accident injury can be challenging because it depends on the type of claim you file. The vast majority of construction accident claims will be resolved through settlements with the Georgia workers’ compensation insurance system. For these claims, the injured individual should be able to recover complete compensation for their medical bills and approximately two-thirds of their average weekly wage if they are unable to work while they recover.
However, there are times when third parties, aside from the employer or co-worker, cause the injury. In these cases, the injured worker may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party in civil court, which could help them recover additional types of compensation. This includes not only medical bills, but also complete coverage of lost wages as well as coverage of any pain and suffering damages (something that is not available through workers’ compensation insurance).
Will an Attorney be Necessary?
Construction accident injury claims in Georgia can be complicated, particularly when it comes to dealing with the insurance carriers involved. Often, the employer or the insurance carrier will try to downplay the incident. They may even delay or deny a workers’ compensation claim.
Even more challenging is a civil personal injury claim if one becomes necessary due to the nature of the injury. An attorney will need to help file third-party personal injury claims in court and then prepare the claim for trial. This includes gathering evidence to prove liability, handling all negotiations with other parties, and handling the discovery process once the lawsuit starts.
