Drywall installation can be crucial for construction. While wood or metal usually provides the frame for the building, drywall can turn the skeleton into an actual structure that can provide sufficient shelter, privacy and security. Therefore, professionals who install drywall often have an important role. Unfortunately, their job may be dangerous. Drywall workers comp can provide insurance for these professionals in case they get hurt on the job.
Drywall panels can often be heavy and cumbersome to carry. One wrong move may send the drywall to crash on the worker, potentially causing serious injury like a broken arm. Furthermore, drywall may be installed around electric wires. If the worker is not extremely careful, the drywall installer may be electrocuted. Regardless of the nature of the injuries or their severity, the hurt worker may need to be hospitalized and may be unable to continue working for some time or even permanently.
Drywall workers comp can provide necessary funds for the workers during those difficult times. Even with health insurance, medical bills can often be costly, potentially requiring high deductible payments. Additionally, workers who are unable to return to work lose their source of income, further putting a strain on their finances. Workers compensation may cover these medical bills and pay a percentage of lost wages. This way, drywall professionals won’t need to be unnecessarily burdened if they are hurt on the job.
