Different options for workers following a construction accident

This blog recently discussed the importance of workers' compensation to victims of work-related accidents, which can include construction accidents. Workers injured on the job may be able to receive workers' compensation benefits for their medical expenses and lost earnings, which may help them and their family through a difficult time following a work-related injury or death.

Understanding workers' compensation basics

Workers' compensation benefits can be helpful to workers and their families who find themselves in challenging situations following a workplace accident, injury or death. Workers' compensation is a form of insurance that can pay out benefits to injured workers and family members of workers killed in fatal workplace accidents.

Did your doctor let your labor go on too long?

This is it. The event you have been waiting for throughout your pregnancy. Your contractions started, and you arrive at the hospital ready to meet the newest addition to your family. Your doctor comes in to check on you and the baby. If your contractions and dilation have progressed far enough, the staff on the maternity ward makes you as comfortable as possible.

What is wrongful death?

You may have heard the term before, but what is wrongful death? Wrongful death refers to a legal remedy available to help family members of victims of fatal accidents. Wrongful death refers to when a loved one has been wrongfully killed because of the negligence of another party. Wrongful death can occur in the context of medical malpractice, workplace accidents or car accidents, among other circumstances and situations. A wrongful death claim for damages enables surviving family members to seek compensation for the harm they have suffered.
