Did you or a loved one get injured at work in Utah? Read these 3 construction accident facts for guidance, then call our attorneys today.
If you have been injured in a construction accident in the state of Utah, we recommend that you notify your employer. The employer that you are working with or for could have workers’ comp insurance that would allow you to receive medical care and receive compensation for your lost income while you are waiting to resolve or settle your case. If you have any further questions on this, please come in and talk with us.
If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, you may have questions about who you have to give statements to or who you have to provide information to. You are required to provide information to your employer and let them know about the injuries and about the accident and you may be required to do that for workers’ compensation as well. If you’re injured by a third party on the job site or somebody else, you’re not required to give a statement to other insurance companies without contacting an attorney first. The reason for that is these insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions to get the answers they need, to try to show that you’re not as injured as you say you are. They will do whatever they need to do to reduce the value of your case.
In the state of Utah, we have a workers’ compensation system that does not allow you to sue your employer. In exchange for that, you get workers’ compensation benefits, but at the same time, you give up the right to make a claim against your employer. If you have questions about workers’ compensation claims or how it affects your other claims, don’t be afraid to call our office.
