http://www.DaggettShulerLaw.com. Workers’ Compensation covers many of the injuries that occur on a construction site, although there are some exceptions. David Daggett explains why it is important to contact an experienced attorney if you are injured on a construction site.
The way workers’ compensation works is basically what happens is you get paid 2/3 your average weekly wage, up to the statutory maximum, for the time period that you’re out for what’s called total disability. And then you’re also entitled to compensation for any permanent disability that you have beyond that point in time.
Worker’s compensation is a crucial part of our legal system today. But it is also a complex one, that is often confusing to many people.
