Work Related Scaffolding Accidents
Workers' Compensation Lawyer in Los Angeles
An injury on the job is never easy to deal with, especially if you become disabled and cannot work for a period of time. Fortunately for those in California, workers' compensation laws protect you and provide you with certain benefits when you are injured on the job. A Los Angeles workers' compensation attorney can provide you with all the information you need regarding what types of benefits you may be entitled to.
When injured in a scaffolding accident, you may suffer serious injuries from a fall or sudden collapse of the scaffolding. As many construction jobs such as painters, roofers and window washers use scaffolding, there are many risks that can occur when working with this type of equipment. Scaffolding can be assembled incorrectly, causing it to be unstable or collapse. It can be poorly maintained, which could result in some of the boards breaking and causing falls. If you or a loved one has been injured in a work related scaffolding accident, a workers' compensation lawyer can assist you in ensuring your claim for benefits is handled appropriately and that you receive all benefits allowed.
Why use an attorney?
You may think that because you are entitled to benefits by law, you don't really need an attorney for your claim. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Many unscrupulous employers may try to have your claim denied, arguing that the injury did not occur at work. Or the workers' compensation insurance company may attempt to get you to complete your treatment quickly, disregarding your health and well being in order to cut down on costs.
At the Pacific Attorney Group we understand the workers' compensation laws and know what you are entitled to. Our legal team will put together a well documented claim on your behalf in order for you to qualify for all the benefits you deserve.
