What should I do after being injured in a construction accident?
If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, the very first thing that you should do is report the incident to your boss or to the construction site supervisor. If you are not an employee of the company or you’re not actively working on the job site, you should still do the same thing – find the supervisor or the person in charge and make sure the incident gets reported. After you’ve done that, receive medical treatment. You’ll want to know the extent of your injuries, and you’re going to want to make sure that you are okay. Finally, I recommend talking to an attorney right away. The attorney is going to guide you through the process and, most importantly, they are going to put all of the companies and individuals on notice that a lawsuit may be coming, and they will be advised to save all of the evidence pertaining to your claim.
