Construction Vehicle Accident Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Our Law Firm Has Been Helping the Injured in New Jersey Since 1927
Different types of vehicles are used at construction sites in Monmouth and Ocean counties. An accident with one of these vehicles on the job is considered a workplace injury. Injured workers are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. The construction accident lawyers at Shebell & Shebell, LLC fight to make sure injured workers get all the benefits they deserve.
Construction vehicles can include pickup trucks, dump trucks, box trucks, concrete mixer trucks and other types of vehicles. Many are very large and very heavy. They can also be very dangerous if there’s an accident. When there’s a collision, or a malfunction, workers can be seriously hurt.
The injuries suffered in a construction vehicle accident can include injuries to the head, neck, back or shoulders. Workers may suffer broken bones. More serious injuries include traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries.
Work Injury Attorneys Dedicated To Getting The Best Results
Workers injured in a construction vehicle accident may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. They may need multiple follow-up visits with doctors and specialists. Recovery can take months or even longer. Some injured workers never fully recover and are left with a permanent disability.
A construction vehicle accident can have physical and financial effects on injured workers. They are left with an injury and need medical treatment. The expenses for that treatment can add up quickly and become overwhelming. While workers are left unable to work, there is less income coming in.
The workers’ compensation system is supposed to cover the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment. Injured workers can also receive partial wages while they are unable to return to the job. Employers and their insurance companies are not on the side of injured workers, however.
Employers and insurance companies try to minimize claims to save money. They question the extent of injuries or the need for certain kinds of treatment. They send workers to independent medical examinations (IME) with doctors that they choose. They may pressure workers to return to the job, even though their injuries have not fully healed.
Our workers’ compensation attorneys know the tactics that insurance companies use to minimize claims. We help injured workers fight back to get the benefits they deserve. Our lawyers build strong cases for benefits based on facts and present convincing arguments to workers’ compensation judges.
