Worker injured at Des Moines construction site

Construction work is amongst the most dangerous in our society. These men and women bravely put their safety on the line in order to build the infrastructure we need to advance our economy and overall well-being. In the process, though, they often perform their duties in close proximity to heavy machinery, fast-moving vehicles and excessive heights. Sometimes, despite utilizing safety equipment provided to them, workplace accidents occur that leave these workers seriously injured.

What benefits can you pursue through workers' compensation?

If you are injured in a workplace accident, then you'll likely face some financial hardship. Although you may have some paid time off built up, it may not be enough to cover the amount of time you'll be away from work. This means that you might end up losing wages during a time when you have to absorb unexpected medical expenses. This hardship can be difficult to overcome, particularly if you don't have significant savings.
