Why many construction accidents go unreported (and why that’s a problem)
Workers’ compensation operates on a pretty simple premise: People who are injured on the job should be able to receive compensation for their lost income and medical care for their injuries. You can’t be compensated, however, if you don’t report your injuries — and it’s estimated that about half of all construction accidents never make it onto an injury report.
What gives? When researchers looked into the issue in 2013, they found that many employees readily admit that they have failed to report injuries from time to time. Some of the top reasons they gave include:
The key to safety in any workplace is a supportive environment that cares about the health and safety of its workers. Unfortunately, many construction workers aren’t in that kind of environment. Claims may go unpaid even when they are reported. If you’re struggling to obtain compensation after a construction accident, it may be time to seek legal assistance.
