Filing for Workers’ Compensation after a Construction Accident
Workers’ compensation insurance is mandatory for all employers in California. By offering this coverage, employees are able to obtain compensation following a workplace injury, and employers are shielded from liability in the event of an accident.
As a construction employee, you can file a workers’ compensation claim if you are injured on the job. You can pursue this claim regardless of fault or negligence and recover benefits for medical care, wage replacement, and, in some cases, long-term disability.
To pursue a workers’ compensation claim, you will need to seek emergency medical attention and notify your employer immediately. Within one working day following your report, your employer will provide you with a workers’ compensation claim form to initiate your case. After submission, the insurance company will then review your claim and issue a decision.
Filing a Lawsuit after an Ontario, CA Construction Accident.
If you were not an employee of the construction company, you are not eligible for a workers’ compensation claim. However, you could pursue a lawsuit against any negligent party responsible for your accident, such as the company, an employee, or a third party, such as a manufacturer.
If you are a construction employee, you could pursue a lawsuit under certain conditions. For example, if you are injured by a negligent third party, such as a subcontractor, you could file a claim against the subcontractor. You could also file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of defective machinery.
You could pursue a lawsuit against your employer under limited circumstances, such as the following.
- Your employer willfully assaulted you or sanctioned an assault by another employee.
- Your employer did not carry workers’ compensation coverage.
- You experienced an aggravated or worsening injury due to your employer’s wrongful or fraudulent concealment.
- Your employer made the defective product that caused your injury and someone else other than your employer provided you with the product.
