Timeline For Reporting

Under most conditions, you have 30 days to report your accident and injury to your employer. The 30-day deadline does not mean you must file for injury benefits within that time. It simply means that your employer must be given time to investigate and report the incident. After reporting the accident, you have up to one year to file a claim for benefits, relative to the accident or disability.

Common types of construction site injury claims include:

  • Heavy truck and motor vehicle accidents
  • Falls from roofs, walls, scaffolding and ladders
  • Explosions, burns and electrical shock
  • Head injuries from falling or swinging equipment, products or materials
  • Trench collapse injuries
  • Crane, hoist or conveyor accidents
  • Power tool accidents, table saw injuries
  • Lifting injuries to back, shoulders and knees
