If you or your loved one has been injured in a construction accident, these are the mistakes you need to avoid in pursuing justice.
What mistakes should I avoid after a construction accident?
I was contacted by a potential client who had recently been in a construction accident. This person wanted to know what some of the common mistakes that should be avoided following an injury. One of those mistakes is not seeking immediate medical treatment. Another mistake that the person may make is not notifying the supervisor or the company that is working at the job site that you have been injured. Not doing so tends to decrease the credibility of the claim, and therefore can impact the value of the case overall.
Another mistake is that people stop treatment for one reason or another. That is problematic because, again, if the injuries are serious, then the treatment should be serious as well and should continue until you are fully healed. Another mistake that people make is they don’t talk to an attorney as quickly as possible, especially a firm that is willing to take a construction accident claim all the way to trial if necessary.
