Q: What does Carlisle workers’ comp cover for construction workers?
You know that working in construction can be dangerous, which is why you do as much as you can to stay safe. But despite your best efforts, you were still received on-the-job injuries. The accident wasn’t your fault, yet you are the person who has to deal with the pain, doctor’s appointments, and everything else that goes along with caring for an injury. Workers’ compensation is designed to cover some of the expenses related to your injury, which may lessen some of the stress you are experiencing.
