Ways A Bakken Construction Injury Can Cost You

A construction injury can cost you a significant amount of money. When you are out in the Bakken oil field area, there are various injuries that can happen. Regardless of your position, you are eligible for workers' compensation from your employer.

Finding an attorney in addition to working with your employer is important. Much of this has to do with calculating the value of your claim. You may be eligible for financial compensation due to the extent of your construction injury.

You may not realize just how much a construction injury can cost you until you start to add it up. This includes:

  • Medical bills
  • Time away from work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy
  • Future earnings

All of this is factored into a case when you are seeking justice from a workplace injury. Particularly in the Bakken area because of the work being conducted, accidents can be significant. You don't want to be in a situation where you are paying out-of-pocket for an accident that wasn't your fault. This is why you need someone to fight for you.

Calculating the Losses

You don't want to try and calculate the losses on your own. You also don't want your employer and their insurance company calculating them as they are going to calculate on the low side. This is why it's best to work with an attorney who specializes in construction industries and knows about the Bakken oil field jobs.
