If you work in the construction industry in West Virginia, you know the inherent risks associated with your everyday tasks. Whether you are an electrician, carpenter, pipe fitter, roofer or heavy machinery operator, the tools and equipment you use and the environment in which you work make your job inherently more dangerous than most other jobs. Unfortunately, construction accidents do occur and when they do, they can be serious. Besides the physical injury associated with a construction accident, there is also the added financial burden brought on by the inability to work and medical bills.
When you have been injured on the job in West Virginia, you are entitled to protection through the West Virginia Workers' Compensation system. However, you may be entitled to relief beyond that provided by workers' compensation, which is why you need the Wolfe Law Firm.
