When someone is injured at a construction accident, they will probably be faced with the consequences of suffering a catastrophic injury. They might also be faced with the troubles that can arise when trying to figure out who is liable for what happened. If you’re in this situation right now, then please know that Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers in Monroe can help you.
We are a local legal team that is backed by extensive experience and a history of success. With a background in personal injury casework and workers’ compensation law, we are able to manage virtually any construction accident case that comes out way.
If you were working on a construction site when you were injured, then you might be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim. Through this program, you can get medical and wage replacement benefits at no cost to you and with no need to sue another party. You simply have to show that you were hurt in the scope of your employment, and the insurer should approve your case.
Of course, not every workers’ comp case goes according to the claimant’s plans. Many claims face first-round denials, and sometimes without an explanation. To give yourself less stress when dealing with a workers’ comp case after a construction accident, let our attorneys help from the start.
