While injuries can occur in virtually every profession, they are significantly more prevalent in the construction industry due to the dangerous nature of the work. As in other professions, construction workers injured on the job are eligible for workers' compensation coverage while they recuperate.
The most common causes of a construction accident include:
Having unsafe working conditions on the site
Using unsafe work equipment on the site
Having poor safety precautions on the site
Not having sufficient training of the workers
We work extremely hard to provide you with the experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated representation you deserve to achieve the best possible compensation for your construction injury case.
We pride ourselves on keeping you fully informed at every stage of your case.
#1. Get immediate medical care The extent of your injuries or of others is very hard to diagnose at the time of your incident. Serious injuries may or may not result in immediate pain or discomfort. Call 911 or emergency services after any serious accident or injury.
#2. At the time or your accident or injury it is common try to analyze your injuries or all the circumstances of the accident. In most cases, this should not be done during the stressful aftermath of an accident. If other parties make statements make note of their comments. Do not sign documents or make statements to an insurance adjuster.
#3. Cooperate with medical care and law enforcement authorities. Provide requested motor vehicle, insurance or personal ID information. Capture pictures (via cell phone) of important details of your accident (by an uninjured party).
#4. Each personal injury case has unique circumstances which can only be addressed from an experienced and qualified personal injury attorney. Contact an attorney for a confidential consultation as soon as possible.
#5. Medical injuries can take time to fully diagnose. One painful injury can mask a completely different and more serious injury. If you experience any medical issues after your incident contact a medical professional immediately. Keep all incident and medical records for your attorney's review.
