Fighting for what you have earned

Heights, electricity, machinery, tools. These are just some of the elements that make construction such a dangerous occupation across Coachella Valley.

As we have noted in the past, falls are the leading cause of construction injuries. Some of the worst falls can be from ladders, from one story of a building to another, from bridges or from scaffolding. The result can be serious injuries that require extensive periods away from work, surgeries and physical rehabilitation.

Serious injuries sustained on construction sites can be life-changing. A spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, crushed limb, amputation, nerve damage, eye injury and other forms of physical harm can mean months or years of pain and an inability to work. In some situations, the injury results in permanent, full disability, meaning the worker can never return to his or her job.

In cases involving long-lasting injuries, some insurers will attempt to deny workers’ compensation benefits needed to pay for enormous medical expenses. Those benefits also replace a portion of the injured person’s lost wages, of course.

It’s one of the worst things that can happen in the course of employment. Not only are you injured and unable to work, but you are denied the needed workers’ comp benefits you have earned.

Because the stakes in these cases are high, insurers will often vigorously fight to deny benefits. The fight to get you those benefits has to be at least as vigorous, as detailed and as persuasive to the administrative law judge who will hear a workers’ comp appeal.

Many people refuse to go into such a hearing without an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at their side. It is one of the most important ways in which we at English Lloyd & Armenta serve our clients.
