Inadequate Supervision Injuries
Construction supervisors are responsible for ensuring the safety of workers on job sites. When they fail to do so, workers of all experience levels face the risk of serious job site injuries. If you’ve been injured due to inadequate supervision on a construction site, the construction accident attorneys at Fields Law Firm want to help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you need to cover your medical bills and lost wages.
Client Success Story
A local Minnesota truck driver was hauling black dirt between two job site locations throughout the course of his work day. Another truck driver with the same employer was engaged in the same task. At one point during the day, the two men argued about where they were supposed to be dumping the black dirt. At the very end of the day, the truck driver’s coworker walked over to his truck, ripped the truck door open, and punched him in the forehead and then directly in the mouth.
The man suffered broken teeth, a fractured nose, and a minor concussion. A few days later, he suffered a stroke, which doctors suspected was related to the head trauma he experienced. The workers’ compensation insurance company stated that our client could not make a wage loss and medical benefits claim. The insurance company took the position that both men were engaged in a “prohibited act” and therefore, our client found his workers’ compensation claim denied.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at Fields Law Firm fought to get the insurer to pay for our client’s wage loss and medical benefits. We were able to reach an amicable settlement whereby the workers’ compensation insurer had to take care of all our client’s medical bills. The insurer remains responsible for medical bills causally related to the injuries the man suffered to his teeth and nose.
