Few occupations expose workers to injury more than construction. The construction industry is highly regulated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), yet serious injuries occur every day on construction sites across the United States. OSHA statistics show that construction accidents account for one of the highest fatality rates of any industry.
If a construction worker is injured on the job and unable to work, he or she can file for workers' compensation. An experienced workers' compensation attorney will maximize the amount one receives.

The majority of injured construction workers who collect workers' compensation are exempt from filing a personal injury lawsuit as well. But there are exceptions to this, and it is always worth asking a knowledgeable personal injury attorney if filing a personal injury lawsuit in addition to a workers' compensation claim makes sense.Experienced Tulsa Workers' Comp And Personal Injury Lawyer
